Teaches Freshman Honors/Freshman English Bachelor of Arts, San Diego State University
I have taught for 30+ years in public schools and now, after 4 years at Salesian, I can confirm that the students are the same wherever you go. I teach to support and encourage them to be the best they can be in every aspect of their lives. I love seeing the growth in them from 9th grade to their graduation day. I believe in the saying “they must think that you care before they care what you think.”
