I am a graduate of California State University Dominguez Hills. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Communications with a focus in Public Relations and Advertising. I also have an Associates of Arts in Journalism. I will begin working on a Master’s in Education degree in the Fall of 2015. Until then, I work as a Coordinator for a Character Building Mentorship Program at a local charter school in Los Angeles, CA. I have worked in Education for over 20 years in several capacities. I worked as an Administrator for a medical university and as a School Administrator for a Bible College and private Christian High School and Middle School. At the private school I taught Performing Arts, 8th grade Religion, and substituted 11th and 12th grade Language Arts. In addition, I ran the afterschool tutoring and mentoring programs. After 7 years working as a teacher, tutor, mentor, coordinator and administrator, I was elected to the local Board of Education where I served for 6 years. I believe that every child can learn with the right encouragement, determination to succeed, and a strong support network. Finding hidden gifts and talents in children; helping them realize their full potential and identify their special qualities is what I’m most passionate about. I use a lot of positive reinforcement when working with my students. When I have down time, I enjoy watching love story movies with a happy ending; Zumba dancing; yoga exercising and shopping.
