My name is Esther
Tangkilisan and I live in Cypress,
My family and I came from Jakarta, Indonesia,
in 1995. I was a programmer analyst (back then), working for business
(banks). I am not a teacher yet (hopefully I will be one, in years to come),
but I am planning to pursue my Master’s degree in Computer Education and the
credential program in Math.
I am one of the three adventurers who discover the Spirit Planet in the
Spirit Solar System. When you are ready, please glance through those pages
above that I was invented during this explorer period. If you have questions
and suggestions, don't be hesitate to contact
me. Happy surfing!

I was Born and raised in
Manado, a nice beach city in North Sulawesi, Indonesia, some years ago. I
love to eat fish, but not the raw one.
Vegetables were on one of the breakfast menus, but I am not a vegetarian;
meat was one of the occasional meals during special events, and rice …every

Important thing: Family
I love my
parents’ family, one kind of a common traditional family, with seven
sisters and one brother. My parents provided every single need until we
graduated from college, ready for the next step, and I admire them for it.
And family value... it was one of the teaching lessons, and I respect it.
Based on this experience, as parents, we, my husband Errol and I, provide
for our kids and tutor them to respect and value others.

Interesting thing: Traveling
I love traveling with my family to the part of the amazing places
in Indonesia, such as: Kuta in Bali with the Hindu culture, Jogyakarta in
Central Java with the Borobudur Temple, the Buddhist culture, Bromo Mountain
in East Java with the Volcano, or Bunaken Island in North Sulawesi with the
We also enjoy traveling to Big Bear Lake to see and to play in the snow in
winter season, or to go fishing on summer vacation; Going to Las Vegas or
Reno, just for fun with kids, to play in Circus Circus to earn a bunch of
toys, eat lots of buffet food, and enjoy the night lights, and to play the
coin machines that eat up our money; To go to the Grand Canyon, to get amazed
by for the great natural creation, and to go to Sedona, the red rock canyon
that build up the reddish city. We like to go to Lake Tahoe, the big lake
that divides California and Nevada, or to the Lake Mead that divides Nevada
We treasure the journey To Sacramento, the lonely city, except for the politics;
or to Berkeley, the small-dirty-student city. We enjoy sightseeing in
San Francisco with the longest bridge in the nation, and the yummy food from
the ocean, as well as going to the Pier Santa Barbara, Santa Monica, Redondo
Beach, and Huntington Beach. Wow… so many things to see, to picture, to
imagine, to value, to love, and to enjoy, as our lives. So, let us live our
lives and enjoy them as gifts from God.
Angeles is not my final destination, but a place to pursue education. I
decided to attend the California State University at Los Angeles (CSULA)
majoring in Computer Information Systems (CIS) with the intention of
working in the information technology industry one day. During my years of
college, I heard about courses offered in the Charter College of Education.
I realized that knowledge of the cognitive aspects of organization and
representation of information with a CIS background could help me create
efficient information technology and effective user interactive designs. I
wish to use these skills to promote empirical studies in education that can
help direct educational reform.
