Academic Experience

I have taught in non-public and public schools for over 20 years. In addition, I have taught at Santa Rosa Junior College in the College Skills Department since 2004. My main assignments have been in the Tutorial Center and several College Skills courses including math, spelling, vocabulary and CSKLS 313 reading and writing classes.

I began my teaching career as an art teacher after receiving my BFA from Kent State University. Upon moving to California I taught in a school for learning different students. I wanted to learn more so I enrolled at Sonoma State University where I earned my Masters of Education. I have worked in College Skills and at the Tutorial Center for several years. It has been my pleasure to assist students in gaining the necessary skills to be successful at college level courses.

Professional Areas of Interest

Children's Literature is a strong interest of mine. I love the magic that happens when one loses oneself in a good story. At the present time I am nearing completion of a picture book about bugs and crawly things and developing a chapter book with mystical dragons'. To broaden my skills, I took Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator classes here at SRJC. This experience has helped me understand the learning curve for subjects that may be challenging to students.

Professional Involvement and Community Service

I have trained through and been a member of the International Dyslexic Society
