I just completed my thirteenth year as a CTE Business instructor with an emphasis in MS Office, GAFE, digital and print publications, career exploration, and communications. I recently added an a-g course with an English concentration. My capstone course offers a business internship experience. I have published journalism projects, and I help prepare students in the areas of resume, job application, cover letter, and interviewing. I love a good challenge and look forward to expanding my student relationships outside of my local area.
I am more of an authority model who instructs through demonstration. I consider myself a facilitator working myself out of a job as students become independent.

Based on my years and level of experience in this industry field, combined with completing specific educational requirements, I was awarded a Clear Full-Time Designated Subject Credential in Office Occupations through the California State University San Bernardino in the spring of 2007. In December 2012, my credential was broadened to cover the subjects of Information Technology as well as Finance and Business.
Just as the African proverb states, “It takes a village to raise a child.” I attribute my success to a “village” of people who supported and believed in me. I want to in turn pass on that support.
