"I've come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that creates the weather. As a teacher, I possess a tremendous power to make a child's life miserable, or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration." - Haim Ginott, Teacher, Author
M.Ed., Notre Dame de Namur University, 2009; B.A. Liberal Studies, Notre Dame de Namur University, 2006
I've taught middle school Language Arts, Math, and Science between 2007-2014, and have enjoyed every minute of it. I've also worked with adolescent kids through my coaching and high school teaching experience. Meanwhile, I've been coaching volleyball for grades 6-12. Currently I'm assisting the women's volleyball team at De Anza College. I have a passion for teaching and coaching.
I'm a big fan of teaching my students the course material, while relating it to real life scenarios. We go to school to make a bigger impact in our society, not simply to learn the course content.
Come experience my love for teaching in my child development classes offered here at De Anza College.
