I have been teaching ESL at Cabrillo for 21 years (Wow, I can't believe it). I have also co-taught Early Childhood Education classes and Community Health Worker classes for the past 3 years. On Tuesday evenings, I am a night coordinator and tutor at the ILC on the Watsonville campus where I thoroughly enjoy working with students on their papers for all classes, including many ECE classes. In addition, I taught Spanish at Orchard School for 6 years as a fun, small side job (Originally I began teaching bilingual kindergarten in Watsonville, but that was over 25 years ago).
I was born and raised in Santa Cruz County, but I have often traveled for long periods of time around the world. I too was a student at Cabrillo where I completed my AA. I then received my BA in Latin American Studies and completed my bilingual teaching credential at UCSC. After I lived in Mexico for almost a year, I returned to school at San Jose State where I acquired my Masters in Teaching English as a Second Language.
