I was born and raised in Southern California and have lived in Los Angeles since attending UCLA as an undergrad. I have always enjoyed working with kids at summer camps and volunteering with different children’s organizations, so after undergrad I began working as a TA in an LAUSD school and absolutely loved being in the classroom. I was inspired to return to UCLA to earn my teaching credential and Master’s in Education. I have been working for LAUSD as a teacher since 2014 and achieved National Board Certification in 2018.
I am so happy to be a part of the Short Avenue community since 2019 and to be teaching first grade alongside so many caring and dedicated educators. I believe that the best learning happens through experiences and active participation and I look forward to growing with my students every year!
In my spare time, I enjoy traveling to new places, going on hikes, reading, and relaxing with my dog, Benny.
