In 1992, I began teaching inner-city children through nonprofit programs and organizations. I was inspired to continue to reach out to these children through creative writing and literacy programs. I worked with troubled teens at alternative schools and in low income neighborhoods. I also participated in programs that reached out to teens in juvenile detention centers. My greatest joy was working with homeless children as part of my non-profit organization, ETHOS. Since 2004, I have taught beginner, intermediate, and advanced English Language Learners of various ages, cultures, and backgrounds in the US, Germany, and Greece. I started teaching college students and high school students for the University of Incarnate Word in Texas with great success due to my collaboration with a phenomenal staff of educators dedicated to student achievement.
