While our foundation has held firm, we pride ourselves on continuing to modernize the curriculum and our teaching practices. The prestigious 2016 Bernard M. Gordon Prize for Innovation in Engineering and Technology Education is a nod both to our history and to our future, recognizing WPI’s project-based curriculum developing leadership, innovative problem-solving, interdisciplinary collaboration, and global competencies. Arguably every student who attends WPI learns to think like an engineer; these days there is just as much attention to assuring our students think like entrepreneurs.
I have an MA in English for California State Univ. Dominguez Hills. I have aBA from UCLA in Political Science with a minor in English with over 30 credits in English. I have teaching experience at Texas A&M, several community colleges, and at Mount Vernon Middle School (now Cochran Middle School) where I taught language arts to 7th and 8th grade students for LA Unified Schools. I have never given up my goal though it has been a long road. I am now able to go to school full-time without working though financial help or a teaching position would be very helpful. Thank you for considering me.
