Prof. Candelaria has been teaching at CCSF since 2008

In addition to teaching the fundamentals of composition, I strive to include, educate and inspire my students by selecting socially and culturally relevant material and underscoring the value of close reading and participation. I also apply Marxism, feminism, post-colonial and psychoanalytic criticism to my teaching of literature.
