I am a 7th-8th grade Social Studies, AVID, M.A.S.T.E.R.S., and ELD teacher at Cesar E. Chavez Middle School.  I have been fortunate to be part of this district for 12 years.  As a person who grew up in Planada, I remain passionate about teaching the kids from my community.  
I graduated from CSU, Fresno with a B.A. in History and Chicano Studies, with a Teaching Credential. Throughout my academic career I acquired an English authorization.  In pursuing higher education I recently graduated from CSU, Stanislaus with an Administrative Credential and an M.A. in Education.
I love to travel and consider myself to be life-long learner.
