My teaching philosophy:   Building on a student's existing strengths can result in successes in the college experience as well as in life skills.

 I truly love teaching reading and  SLS 1101 (College Experience) at SPC (adjunct instructor since 8/05).  What I even love more is seeing my students' progress, developing their talents and achieving their goals.  From my students I have learned a great deal.  We all are teachers and learners.

My educational background: 

                                                    *University of Miami (FL), B.Ed. Secondary Education-Social Science

                                                    *University of South Florida, M.A. Reading Education-Secondary Education

Additional education of 32 graduate semester hours post M.A. courses:

"To read without reflecting is like eating without digesting."  Edmond Burke (1729-1797)

"Knowledge is of no value unless you put it into practice."  Anton Chektov
