Thank you for joining me in my 7th grade classroom. I am originally from Northern California but I have made San Diego my home. With a background in finance and a passion to serve the community by working with my former congressman, I decided to combine my love for learning and helping others through teaching by obtaining my Masters in Education from the University of San Diego. To help me get settled in sunny San Diego, I've come to enjoy hiking, biking, going to the beach, and spending time with my friends and my family. Some of my other passions include cooking, nutrition, and health. I enjoy finding local, in-season produce at farmers markets and making dishes inspired by my ingredients. In addition, I love to travel; I often go on day trips to explore new places and to get outside and be in nature. I look forward to inspiring our students to cultivate their own passions through encouraging them to discover what fuels their learning in the classroom. In addition, I am very happy to help Scholarship Prep Oceanside achieve their goals as the CAASPP Coordinator.
