Profession: Educator/ Writer/ Poet/ Performer
Expérience d'enseignement: I have taught mainly 8th and 9th grade students (ages 12-14) in literacy programs after school in Oakland and San Francisco, California for a little over a decade (altogether). The majority of my students have always been ESL/First generation Americans. I have also taught at a very prestigious summer school program based in San Francisco called Aim High for 3 years. Aim high is a college readiness program for high needs youth who will be the first in their family to ever attend college.
Intérêts: I love traveling, speaking and learning. I am a very curious person and I love the mysteries in Life.
Éducation: I have a B.A in English with a concentration in writing from Jamestown University in North Dakota (c/o 2006). I have 12 Early Childhood Education units from San Joaquin Delta Community College in Stockton, California. I am a professional and international storyteller for WNYC's Snap Judgement Radio. I am also an international spoken word poet and performer touring Europe with my very first published book of poems and short stories entitled My Soul Is a Witness.
