Hi, I'm Nancy, and I am looking forward to being part of the ESL team at Palomar. I have worked as a college counselor and as an instructor of English composition and grammar as well as taught effective speaking courses in Los Angeles for several years. I have also spent time in Costa Rica, so I speak a bit of Spanish.
