When I told my family and friends, I was going to teach reading, they thought it was only natural given how much I love to read. I do not think that is why I teach reading, though. I teach reading because I had a life-changing conversation over pancakes one day with someone who would end up being my mentor, colleague, and very dear friend. After beginning to teach, I realized it is more of a calling. A vocation. This thing I am meant to do. It took me a long time to know this, but I am very glad I do.

I received my M.S. in Education, with a concentration in reading, from California State University, Fullerton in January 2010. I was fortunate enough to begin teaching part-time at Fullerton college that month. In 2013, I was hired to teach here full-time.

I have taught every reading class we offer at Fullerton College, and I have loved teaching every level. Currently, my assignments are Read 96, Preparation for College Reading and Read 142, Logical Analysis and Evaluation.

My goal as your instructor is to facilitate your learning experience, individually and as part of a small community of learners. I believe it is my responsibility to guide you while understanding it is your education and you have the “right and responsibility to manage” your “own life and learning, growth, discovery, and increasing skills and knowledge” (Angus and Greenbaum 125).
