Welcome to East Valley Academy Study Skills!

Hello all!

In this class we will focus on reading various genres of materials to expose and expand the student's perspective on their future goals and careers, current world events through multimedia sources, group and individual presentations  in addition to introspective discussions about issues of concern in the United States. Kuder is an indepth  program that will assist students to explore the different pathways for their future ambitions.  Speakers that are invited to participate are a motivational and key component to this class that serves to demonstrate to students the endless possibilities when someone is focused on meeting goals. Students will leave from this course a more enriched young adult.

I am originally from East Los Angeles, California. I have traveled and lived in different cities, but now I have made Scottsdale my home. I have discovered that teaching and working with young adults is my true passion. I enjoy encouraging and supporting their efforts as they work their way through my class and have many "aha" moments.  I hope to continue this career that allows me to challenge and guide students to become better observers, participants and citizens than when they entered my class.
