I was born and raised in California and have always wanted to be a teacher. In high school I worked at the on campus pre-school and continued on to California State University of Northridge to study teaching. I have worked with children at summer camps, coaching multiple sports at the elementary and junior high level, and teaching P.E. I have been teaching for 11 years; 8 of those years have been with LAUSD. I came to Short Avenue Elementary 3 years ago and am so happy to call it home.
