Hi, Everyone, I would like to introduce myself. I began my teaching career as a French teacher. Along the way, I decided to teach ESL when ESL teachers were needed to help newly-arrived refugees and immigrants to acclimate into our American culture. I've been in this field for quite some time, and I still really enjoy working with students and seeing you all make progress in your English skills. When I am not teaching at UCI as a full-time teacher, or as an adjunct professor here at IVC, I also enjoy keeping up with my two daughters and their adventures, traveling, reading, playing the piano, and walking my dog (a pitbull rescued by my youngest daughter from a shelter in Oakland). I hope that one day, you can be one of my students and we can work together.
