Biography

At San Diego State University, I focused my studies in ethnic American literature and wrote a graduate thesis titled “Search for Place and Authentic Locations of Identity” based on the works on the African-American writer, Gloria Naylor. I also studied the teaching of English as a Second Language and received an ESL certificate from SDSU in addition to my Masters in English Literature. I also completed a Reading Certificate during Spring 2001 at San Francisco State University.

I have taught and continue to teach a range of writing classes from developmental writing and reading, college-level composition, advanced writing courses in critical thinking, and introduction to literature. Before becoming a full time instructor at Skyline College, I taught part-time at several community colleges in and around the Bay Area as well as at San Diego State University. I have also taught English as a Foreign Language (EFL) in Madrid, Spain at the university level. Currently in my writing classes at Skyline, I tend to design lessons around issues relating to race, class, and gender.  

Outside of school my main interests are reading, running, and traveling.
