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.

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
