My first teaching job was when I was 17, teaching children and adults to swim.  Since no one drowned and most learned to swim, I consider that a success.  I earned a Colorado teaching certificate along with my BA, and started teaching Adult Basic Education in the Boulder Valley School District after graduation.  After years of teaching at the intensive English program at the University of Colorado, Boulder, I accepted an offer to teach at the ELC at DU.
