About Me


Since childhood, my passion for teaching has been a guiding force in my life. In 2005, I embarked on my professional journey with the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) as a Special Education Assistant. My journey began at Reseda High School, where I dedicated myself to supporting students with diverse learning needs. In 2011, I transitioned to Taft High School, where I continued to nurture and empower students through education.


Driven by a desire to further enrich my knowledge and skills, I pursued higher education, earning a Bachelor's Degree in Communication Studies from California State University, Northridge. Armed with a strong academic foundation and a steadfast commitment to education, I took the next step in my career by obtaining my Mild/Moderate Credential in Special Education. This credential opened doors for me to serve as an Education Specialist, allowing me to directly impact the lives of students with special needs.


Throughout my career, my dedication to teaching has remained unwavering. I am deeply passionate about helping students realize their full potential and achieve academic success. Every day, I strive to create a supportive and inclusive learning environment where every student feels valued and empowered to excel.


As I continue my journey as an educator, I am committed to fostering a love for learning and empowering students to overcome challenges and reach their academic goals. My work is not just a profession; it is a calling, and I am determined to make a positive difference in the lives of my students.
