I have been in working in education for 16 years.
I have been an educator for 16 years in the San Juan Unified School District. I began my career in a Title 1 elementary school and then moved up to Title 1 middle schools. I am very passionate about creating the best learning opportunities for students and teachers. I am also very passionate about integrating the arts in the disciplines at school. The more we integrate the arts in our schools the more I see student engagement increase. I am also a learner. I love to collaborate to grow my knowledge base. I believe we in need to be in a constant state of growth to ensure we are always learning.
