Teaching is my passion, and De Anza students have been my inspiration since 2001. I teach basic skills writing and transfer composition, in addition to womenís studies and literature courses. And I teach in the Honors and First Year Experience programs. My teaching philosophies come from bell hooks and my mother: love and hard work. Reading is what I think is the key to becoming a successful writer, and after that, revision. I want to teach my students to learn about voice and then use itó-passionately, from the heart. If you can write, then you can change the world.
