The high school I attended is Simi Valley High School, graduated in 2008. My formal education includes a Bachelor’s degree in English from California Lutheran University, obtained in May 2012. I am currently a grad student at California State University Northridge with the intent of obtaining a Master’s degree in Teaching English as a Second Language, also known as TESL.
I worked at Applebee’s as a hostess from June 2006 until May 2007. I have edited a Professor’s own textbook that she wrote as well as taught a lesson of ESL for one of my coworkers at CPK. I was an English Writing Center Tutor at my Undergraduate University, California Lutheran University (see link to the school's website above) from November 2011-May 2012. I currently work at California Pizza Kitchen as a server, May 2007-Present. I currently also have a Commission-only paying job with Instant Money Network as an Internet Referral Agent from December 2012-Present.
I became interested in teaching during my sophomore year in college at CLU. I had no idea what I wanted to do but I thought I wanted to be a Spanish and French high school teacher. I initially started with a declared double major in Spanish and French, but in my sophomore year, I changed to a double major in English and Spanish. Since I changed my major so late in the game, I ended up dropping my major in Spanish, reducing it to a minor. That is what I stuck with for the rest of my time at CLU. I work with many people at my job for California Pizza Kitchen, who do not speak English very well, some not at all. I speak to them and it made me realize that I want to help adults who want to learn English. That is how I discovered what I really want to do, what my passion is. I want to teach English as a Second Language to adults at the community college and adult school levels.
I am an avid supporter of Gay and Lesbian Civil Rights. HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN . That is probably the cause nearest and dearest to my heart.
In my spare time I am a huge movie and television show fanatic. I have a blog on Tumblr where I post about these interests.
I also am very creative, I am a writer (my short stories are not on here, only my FanFiction stories. I create music videos based off of television shows, as well, and have done so since I was 11 years old. I have them featured on my own YouTube channel as well as on my own website, which I haven’t uploaded in a while.
