2001

I love to learn and I love to teach - two sides of the same coin. I am a student of Samba, boxing, Spanish, business, and saxophone to name a few. Those are some of the things I enjoy doing in my free time. I also travel and experience different cultures and countries.

Being an avid learner improves my skills as a teacher. I am always looking for ways to improve my craft so that I can help you better.

In my career as an educator, I have taught middle school, high school, and adults. I have developed curriculum for ESL, US Citizenship, Literacy, and helped create a program for adult ESL students who want to go to college or advance their career. I am also a certified life coach and have helped adults change careers so that they do work that they love.

Let's work together so you can reach your specific goals!
