Read critically and write effortlessly

I served as Assistant Principal of Academics for over 20 years, guiding students in course selections, based on the requirements of the UC system. I also counseled students on college choices based on what would be a good fit for them, academically, morally and socially. Teaching was my first love. I knew from freshman year in high school that teaching was the only career for me.

Since I began my teaching career, m [more]
