Because students and teachers learn endlessly from one another and are equally curious about one another, here are some facts about my background.


In 1998, I joined the San Mateo Adult School after teaching in various San Mateo High Schools for ten years, both in day and evening classes. The evening classes were:

  •  Short Stories
  •  Writing
  •  English Review

In the Adult School, I worked in several areas:

  • The Adult Learning Center

          English as a Second Language in High Intermediate and Low Advanced English Levels               

  •  Distance Learning since 2005


Since 2005, I have been working solely in the Distance Learning Program and enjoy working with students on all levels, one-on-one, assessing their skills and assigning appropriate materials for them to peruse, study, take home, and return with questions and feedback.It is rewarding to meet dedicated, and diligent individuals, of various ages, from all over the world whose goals are to learn a new language, share knowledge with their families, and receive job promotions. We, their teachers, learn about the world and its fascinating citizens and we want to always Keep Learning!!
