For as long as I could remember, I've been interested in Communication Studies. When
I was in high school I was fortunate enough to take two public speaking classes, one
of which was an advanced class. It was love at first speech.
As I began my career as a college student, my major changed numerous times. However,
I couldn't shake my love for communication studies, and after much soul searching
I came back to my first love. It was my third year in college when I finally began
to focus on Communication Studies as a career option. I had never wanted to teach,
but after spending 5 years in an office setting while putting myself through college,
I figured out that there had to be something more suited to my personality. Thus,
my career choice of becoming a professor came to fruition.
I spent merely a semester as a Teaching Associate at San Jose State University before
graduating and continuing my tenure as an adjunct professor. You can see my experience
below, but the short story is this: I work almost full-time at San Jose State University,
and part-time at Sierra College. I thank God everyday that I get to wake up and do
something I love: teaching.
