My Career at San Mateo Adult School

Hi!  My name is Alesha Dentoni and I am an English as a Second Language (ESL) instructor at San Mateo Adult School. I started my career at the adult school teaching a multiple level ESL class at The Workers Resource Center over ten years ago.  In my decade teaching here, I have taught every ESL level, ran a computer lab and taught a job search class. I am currently teaching high intermediate English Secondary Language in the mornings and evenings.  

My Experience at the Adult School

Teaching at the adult school has truly changed my life. I always knew that education was going to be my career path, but I never knew that working in a school would change my path to my passion. The adult school has given me this gift. Working at a school that has such an impact on people’s lives makes me feel proud. And being part of my students’ journeys, is an honor that I wouldn’t trade for any other job. I hope your experience here as a student, employee or visitor is similar.
