I have returned to school after teaching for the past two years. My first degree is in Child and Adolescent Development from California State University, Northridge. I have decided that I want a more challenging career and have returned to school to become a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. I am currently completing my nursing school prerequisites at City Tech in order to complete an accelerated degree in nursing so I may pursue my masters program.
