ExperienceI have devoted my life to the pursuit of higher learning and education. As a teacher, I think it is very important to prepare my students for success in life and the classroom. I do this by keeping lessons interesting and exciting based on each particular student's needs. I realize that every student enters the classroom with different attitudes, opinions, strengths, weaknesses, and interests. When teaching a class, I remember this while also driving my students to open their minds by adopting new ideas and perspectives. Throughout my academic career, my focus has been racial, gender, and class issues. I have a master's in Anthropology, and have developed my language education skills in Ecuador and Greece. I have a wide variety of teaching experience that includes teaching English in South Korea. I have taught classes on how to be successful in the academic world with an emphasis on organization, study skills, and note-taking. Currently, I am a Sociology professor at Diablo Valley college. My most recent research is on Korean women and cultural aesthetics. I plan to earn my PhD. My expertise is in helping students with their reading and writing skills. My lessons involve assignments that are meant to deconstruct gender, racial, and class issues in order to accept the diversity and beauty of humanity.
