I have been a high school teacher for 25 years, teaching English, political science, history, health, and AVID. I also ran an after-school tutoring program for high school students for 7 years. I have a heart for teenagers and for teaching and learning. I consider myself a lifelong learner, always seeking to better myself and my community. My greatest teachers have been my students who shared with me their own lived experiences, taught me to empower rather than enable them, and to teach from a place of love rather than a place of fear. My teaching abilities naturally flow into all aspects of my life. My clients say they appreciate my patience, my kindness and my method of facilitating learning.
