- Departments:Early Childhood Education
- Title:Adjunct Instructor
I have been teaching Early Childhood Education for BMCC for over 5 years now. After working as a Head Start Teacher and Family Advocate prior to that, I wanted to make a difference in the ECE field, so I sought to become an instructor. I also teach Health and Nutrition to parents of young children and families within schools and early childhood centers for OSU Extension.
I entered college after raising my family and received a BS in Human Development from Warner Pacific University, then went on to get a Master’s Degree in Education from Eastern Oregon University.I am a mother of five, and grandmother of 19, and much of my expertise has been gained from a literal training field of family. I embrace diversity (my own family of grandchildren represents Native American, Hispanic, Korean, German, and Italian), and enjoy the experiences and world views of others.
