I joined Saddleback College as a Geography Instructor in the Spring of 2010. It has been a dream come true for me to be teaching at the Community College that I attended. I even teach in some of the same classrooms where I took classes as a student.
I had never taken a geography class in High School, so I really didn't know anything about geography when I enrolled in my first class. The geography instructors at Saddleback College got me fascinated with the diverse discipline of geography and inspired me to pursue a degree in the field.
Prior to joining Saddleback College, I worked as an instructor at Cerritos College, Fullerton College, East Los Angeles College, and Los Angeles Harbor College. I have taught Physical Geography, Physical Geography Lab, Cultural Geography, World Regional Geography, and Earth Science.
