My educational experience spans forty - two years in the child development field. Which includes thirty years teaching child development and leadership classes for Cuyamaca College, Southwestern College, UC Davis, UCSD, SDSU and San Diego Community College District. My teaching career has been exciting and rewarding teaching: preschool, kindergarten, third grade, eighth grade, high school and CEO/Principal of a charter school. I was a divisional director for forty preschools for ten years. I worked for profit and non-profit organizations : Salvation Army, ECS Head Start, and La Petite Academy.

During the last twelve years I own and operate a large child development center called Oak Tree Academy. I am the CEO and head trainer of a company called The Preschool Source. We have design schools, train directors and teachers all over the United States for Head Start and private companies. What I enjoy most in life is my family and the work I do with college students!
