I have taught 3rd-5th grade for the last 11 years within Los Angeles School District.
I like working with children and giving them opportunities to learn, think, and be creative. I have high expectations and believe that all students have the potential to be awesome! I hope to teach my students responsibility, thoughtfulness, and independence.
