How did God call you into teaching, and/or what are your professional credentials (or prior work experience)?
I was called to teaching as a teenager. I was a lifeguard/swim instructor between the ages 15-18. Well before graduating high school, I knew I wanted to become a high school teacher. I eventually graduated from CSUEB (CSUH) in 2000 with a B.A. in English and immediately went to teach at CVHS. In that I time I completed my Teaching Credential and an M.A. in literature I taught at CVHS for 21 years.
