Working in a position where I can help people has been my career goal for more than 15 years. Prior to taking the position with Spectrum in 2003, I assisted at a local adult day program. Although the job responsibilities were completely different, both provided me with what I was looking for…an opportunity to help improve the lives of others.

At the time I was living in Illinois and my sister, who was an educator, suggested I research Instructional Aide positions available within our school district.

I was a general education teacher in the Philippines for six years before moving to California.
