I started teaching adults at local colleges and universities in 1998. I have a bachelor's degree in history, a master's degree in Comparative Religion (World Religions), and I'm currently working on my PhD in World History and U.S. History. For the PhD, I studied at UCSD for 3 years. I am currently at UC Irvine, where I have been for 1.5 years. I have a little more than one year left before I am done. That is 4.5 years total at the PhD level in doing history work and serving as a T.A. for about 150-180 students through each of those years.
