I teach PCA English: College Prep, Film Studies, Creative Writing and Journey English.
I graduated High School in 1996, went to Ohio State University for 2 years and then transferred to Stony Brook University and graduated in 2005. I then moved to San Diego, CA to obtain my master's and received a master's degree in Education and Cross Cultural Education in 2010. I then moved to Brazil for 1 year and taught EFL in 2 American High Schools.
I love working with youth. In fact, I would rather work with young adults than adults and I think that's why I chose teaching. I had a 4th grade teacher, Mr. Minott, that changed the way I viewed education. He respected me, my learning style and who I was as a young person. I aim to be that respectful to my students and hope that translate through my teaching.
I love to hike, hang out with my family, especially my new baby, Eila, and my dog, Joey.
My very first job was at a deli as a cashier. I learned that customere service, helping people and respecting them, is the key to getting along with everyone.
I try and create a safe and friendly environment that is free of prejudice, bullying and hate.
