I was born and raised in Los Angeles. After I graduated from Samohi, I attended Hampton University in Virginia. In 2007, I began my career as a 2nd grade teacher in Newport News Public Schools. I moved to Arlington, Virginia in 2010. I taught Kindergarten for 8 years in Arlington Public Schools before returning home to Los Angeles and joining Canyon as a kindergarten teacher. When I’m not in the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also love yoga, dancing, baking, and hiking with my dog. I am so happy to be a part of the Canyon community and I look forward to an exciting school year!
