I was born and raised in the Central Valley and even graduated high school in Fresno. I have been teaching for 4 years! I taught middle school and I am so excited to have my dream job of teaching high school. I have a master’s degree in Creative writing. My favorite thing about teaching is when students see all the amazing things they are capable of doing that they never knew they could do. When I am not teaching I am playing with my three handsome boys (ages 6, 5, and 2) or I am sewing or quilting with my mom, sister, and grandmother. The best piece of advice I have ever received was that if you want something you have to work for it, because it will be worth it in the end and you will be proud of what you have accomplished when you finally earn it.
