EducationCal State Long Beach - BA, Art History
ExperienceI hold a bachelor's degree in art history from California State University. I've completed three years of education courses and passed all of the required teacher education exams. I've worked as a teacher for about two decades, working in a variety of education related positions. I spent eight years working as a special education assistant and another eight years working as a special education teacher. I've also been employed as a personal tutor for four years. I presently teach diverse coursework to secondary school students. I am qualified to teach students in the areas of math and English. I've also helped students prepare for the California High School Exit Exam. I have adapted the CAHSEE online math practice test questions to a series of twelve PowerPoint slides that are very helpful to students. I believe that knowledge is important but so is creativity. We can use knowledge to resolve problems and creativity to transform the world. Students don't always use everything they learn, but it's always better to learn and be prepared if a situation arises where a certain type of knowledge is required. When I am not teaching, my interests include art, music, writing, photography, camping, hiking, and sightseeing.
