I have enjoyed teaching at MCTC for the last 15 years. I hold a California teaching credential, a  Bachelor of Science in  Health,  Magna Cum Laude and a Masters Degree in Special Education from California State University, Dominguez Hills. I started a business class run on EBAY 5 years ago. Since its inception the "wetraders ( wetrade-e-trade on EBAY  of room 3,  have sold more than 4000 items for over $33,000 on EBAY and numerous items locally on Craigslist.  My hobbies are music history, DJing, Body Surfing and Italian cooking especially with clams.
