With Cabrillo College since 2005

Welcome to Cabrillo College. I’m the English instructor for both STARS and the Puente learning communities, and I also teach creative writing classes. My specialty is the US Latinx experience and poetry. I organize my classes in order to create a learning environment where we work as a writing community in support of each other’s efforts. I have to brag that the pass rates for my classes are over 80% and that is because I am here to work with you and to help you succeed in college. Together we can create the world we want and that includes your success as a college student and writer.

Join the STARS and Puente learning communities and get extra support while exploring social justice themes, artistic expression, and what makes the world go round.

For Fall 2020, Cabrillo will offer special multi-cultural cohorts for English 1A+ in the STARS learning community. One cohort will focus on the US Latinx experience and Nikia Chaney will teach a cohort that specializes in African American cultural studies. Sign up at the Learning Communities Center or go to
