Life is most interesting when it is full of new challenges, right? As Eleanor Roosevelt once said,_Фё─__Do one thing every day that scares you._Фё─ё¤ That is why we are here on this planet, and I try to make the most of my time here.
I have been an instructor at SRJC since 1996 and have enjoyed each and every class. I began teaching GED preparation classes. Since then I have taught a variety of College Skills and English classes. I feel very grateful to be part of such an extraordinary campus and to have the opportunity to work with so many amazing students.
Before coming to SRJC, I taught junior high and high school and worked with students with learning disabilities. My true passion as a teacher lies in my love of books and collaborating with students as they discover their own love of reading and writing.
I love travel, reading, and writing. My greatest passion (other than teaching, of course) is anything to do with Italy. When I am not teaching and correcting papers, I will be working on my Italian. I am passionately in love with Rome and Florence and dream of the sparkling fountains and warm beaches. In the meantime, I am looking forward to the gift of this upcoming semester!
