I am always ready to express my interest in working as an effective Administrator or outstanding Teacher in any subject area or location. I am available for interview online or in person. I hold a California Administrative Services Credential and a California Professional Clear Teaching Credential. I have over 20yrs experience and I am a professional in the field of education. One that truly believes there are no barriers to achievement when you have a vision to help build successful programs at any level, at any school, through hard work. commttment, and passion.




I attended many schools growing up in my early years due to the same economic hardships that families endure even today. I was fortunate enough to graduate from high school and then put myself through college. The following institutions are written in the order of degrees received.

I take great pride in knowing that education was a key to my survival and success. I often worked up to four jobs at one time while going to school to insure that I would complete my education. The challenges I faced growing up helped instill the passion that drives me to help others along the same path today.
