Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
As a librarian, I created and led ACT prep and information literacy classes. I also spent two years teaching English in Japan. Outside of the classroom, I helped my students prepare for university entrance exams and practice English conversation prior to study abroad trips. Now I handle acquisitions and technical services for a community college library.
