I earned my Master of Arts degree in English (Literature concentration) from CSU Stanislaus; I am now lucky enough to teach a wide range of English classes at Columbia College, Modesto Junior College, and CSU Stanislaus.  In a rare bit of spare time, I like to get lost in a great story, and my favorite novels include Gone With the Wind (Margaret Mitchell), A Farewell to Arms (Ernest Hemingway), On the Road (Jack Kerouac), and all seven books in the Harry Potter series.

On Teaching:

Written communication extends into our world, the air we breathe, and the spirit of our culture--it is what preserves our society, and, at the same time, what moves us forward. In my classes, there are heavy doses of both reading and writing, and—as a result—you will learn more about who you are as a writer in the college realm and what techniques to utilize in order to succeed.
