Born and raised
in Mill Valley. I always wanted to see the world.
After traveling to the Philippines in the military,
I spent a year traveling around United States.
Then, I returned to study International Relations
at CCSF. I also studied Spanish and English.
I received a BA from SFSU.
While in college,
I married a Latin woman which led me to travel
to Central and South America. Later, I returned
to SFSU to complete a MA in TESOL.
I began teaching
for CCSF in 1975 in the ESL and Transitional
