My name is Susan Michaelides. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Liberal Studies, a Master of Arts Degree in Education with an emphasis in teaching reading, a Multiple Subject Credential, a Reading and Language Arts Specialist Credential, an ESL Adult Education Credential, a CLAD Certificate and a TESOL Certificate. I have taught elementary school for over ten years and I've been teaching adult ESL at College of the Canyons for over two years. I love teaching because I have a passion for helping others. I love when my students have "aha" moments after they understand a concept. It's especially rewarding for me to watch them apply this learned knowledge to their everyday lives.
