Professor of Reading/ English
My degree accomplishments are BA (Early Childhood Education [CUNY]), MS (Elementary Education [CUNY]); MS (Educational Leadership [CUNY]); and Educational Specialist (Reading [NSU]).
Sharing effective learning strategies has always been one of my passions throughout my professional learning experiences in the education field. In all of my roles (teacher, literacy coach, teacher union representative, and school supervisor) within the public and private school learning environment, I had several opportunities to interact with different types of learners who needed extra guidance to help them meet their learning needs.
I became an instructional faculty at Valencia College (west campus) in 2012. Since then, I have been a Reading / English instructor, and I currently facilitate as an Instructional LAB Assistant in the Writing Center. Throughout the years, my personal commitment is to ensure that all students, under my instructional supervision, receive and integrate appropriate, effective learning skills that would help them to enhance their academic learning needs as they prepare for the changing workforce in our competitive global community.
My encouragement to all students is to strive to his or her highest academic potential, but always remember that
"Success is not a happening, it is a result. It is doing, instead of doubting. And working hard instead of wishing". (Anonymous)
