I was born and raised in San Jose, CA. I have been teaching at Santee Elementary School since 2013. I received both my B.A. degree in Psychology and Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from San Jose State University. I want to create a collaborative learning environment where students are encouraged to ask questions, take risks, and develop a lifelong passion for learning. I love teaching 3rd grade and working with the students, families, and staff at Santee.
