Biography 

As a sixth generation Arizonan, first generation college graduate and alumna of the Maricopa Community Colleges, I am happily facilitating learning for future graduates of Estrella Mountain Community College!

I began my teaching career in 2006 as an artist partnering with non-profit organizations and the Chicago public schools. I collaborated with teams of classroom teachers and literacy specialists to create arts-integrated programs which improve learning, affirm identity and enhance cross-cultural understanding in the classroom. My interests in language acquisition and cross-cultural communication developed from teaching culturally and linguistically diverse students in Chicago's communities. After four years as a teaching artist, I transitioned to become a teacher of English as a second or foreign language (ESL or EFL) and eventually focused my interests on second language writing/multilingual writers. My work as an ESL/EFL teacher took place in a variety of contexts, both national and international, K-20. I have taught in South Korea, Honduras, Mexico, and was a United States English Language Fellow in Yangon, Myanmar where I also trained future teachers of English. I returned home to the Sonoran desert in 2017 and have been teaching English at EMCC ever since. My English composition courses often incorporate themes of identity+language, visual literacy, cultural phenomena, and human rights. I enjoy watching students step out of their comfort-zone, think critically and express their ideas in new ways. See you in class! 

Some favorite books: Death, Desire and Loss in Western Culture, Norwegian Wood, Pedagogy of the Oppressed, 100 Years of Solitude, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, The Language Instinct, Man's Search for Meaning, The People of Paper
