In my 17 years as an educator, I have taught English courses to middle school, high school, and college-level students. I am a life-long student: I have a BA in English from the University of California, Riverside; an MA in English from New York University; and an MHI (Master of Healthcare Innovation) from Arizona State University.
My greatest personal measure of success was when students would come back to see me after they graduated high school and tell me how prepared they felt for their current college courses. While my student pass rate was always in the 90th percentile for meets/exceeds scores on their AIMS tests, it was the excellent next-step preparation I instilled in the students, whether it was college or the workforce, that was my personal source of pride.
It is my passion and privilege to work with educators to inspire excellent teaching techniques for the English classroom. Please contact me if I can be of service!
