San Francisco, California
Parent Educator/Mentor Teacher
City College of San Francisco - Child Development & Family Studies Department
I have worked with young children since 1978, the last ten years with infants and toddlers. I am a mentor in the California Early Childhood Mentor Teacher Program. I mentor new teachers in the center where I work and student teachers who spend 90 hours with me as a field placement. I work at a subsidized center in San Francisco's Tenderloin neighborhood. All of the families are low income, many are homeless, most are new immigrants.
