You will find here some basic information about me as a teacher, and also the classes I teach. I have taught in the Health Education department at CCSF since 2004 (http://www.ccsf.edu/healthed).
I am no longer the coordinator of the Trauma Prevention & Recovery Certificate in the Interdisciplinary Studies Dept but you can get more information about the certificate at www.ccsf.edu/trauma or you can contact Lauren Muller.
I have been teaching at CCSF since 2004, and have over 20 years of experience in adult education and community health. My work has touched on issues of human rights, violence prevention, gender, leadership development, cross-cultural understanding, workforce development and community mobilization. I love teaching at CCSF because of the diversity of students, the commitment of the faculty and the opportunity to make a difference. My classes are highly interactive, with activities, discussion and video in addition to lecture. I currently serve on the Executive Board of the faculty union, AFT 2121. I received my Masters in Public Health (Community Health Education) from U.C. Berkeley in 1998.
