About Me

Hello! I have been teaching English and ESL for many years and love what I do! In addition to teaching at De Anza, I have taught for the departments of Linguistics and Computer Science at San Jose State University as well as the department of English at Santa Clara University. I spent many years teaching for International Gateways, which is an English program at San Jose State. I like variety. Can you tell? My teaching career has also taken me to Poland, Chile, and South Korea. Hablo Espanol, and I have studied Spanish in Chile, Mexico, and Spain. My family life includes a teenage son, a computer engineer husband, a dog, and two cats. In my free time, I love to read and watch Netflix.
