She has dedicated herself to lifelong learning for almost 30 years, focusing on helping students achieve success in the fields of computer science and engineering. Utilizing her deep knowledge of content appropriate for the given educational level, Dr. Guerrero employs inquiry, observation, and evaluation as the basis for assessing and improving student learning in a manner that is appropriate for their age and language needs.
