"My dad used to take me to skid
row missions in Los Angeles and to convalescent homes when I was a kid..."
...to give me the opportunity to help
people in need. He died in 1985 but his lessons of service stuck with
me. I've been teaching ESL, Literacy and Citizenship at CCSF as well
as in a community based organization that I started over 10 years ago
in my neighborhood. For the past few years, I've been teaching at the
30th St. Senior Center.
