What do you love about teaching? I love that teaching is applying creativity and passion to
mold students for the future. Teaching is also an ongoing cycle of collaboration, imagination
and exploration. Overall, the best thing about teaching is making the connections with my
students, getting to know them and their families throughout the year.
What are you afraid of? I am afraid of jump scares in scary movies. It might seem silly, but
scary movies do terrify me!
What are you proud of? I am most proud of being a first-generation student and being
bilingual. I have experienced first hand how many doors open when you have the ability to speak more than one language. You are welcomed into such beautiful communities and opportunities.
What are you looking forward to? I look forward to getting to know all my students and their
families. I also look forward to seeing each student grow and accomplish great things this
