I started teaching in 2006.
There is no "one size fits all" and since I tailor lessons to the individual and group needs of students, my teaching approach would be described as eclectic at best.
Santa Clara University honored me with a special award of service to the Department of Education in 2006.
AA West Valley College; BS California State University, Chico; Multiple Subject Credential, Santa Clara University
I love to spend my spare time with my hands in the soil tending my garden and enjoying backyard wildlife as well as spending time with my husband, daughter, and son.
