PHILIOSOPHY
As I work with teacher candidates, my goal is to nourish and enrich their growth as they establish themselves as scholars, professionals, leaders, and change makers.

I am delighted to be a part of the Benerd School of Education's Teacher preparation program where I get to work in the community where I live.For over a decade I have been learning and growing as an educator while working with students, teachers, administrators, and professors in the San Joaquin valley. Cultivating these relationships has provided me with a strong foundation in realizing my strengths as a teacher, leader, and change maker. As I work with teacher candidates, my goal is to leverage my experiences to nourish and enrich their growth as they establish themselves as scholars, professionals, leaders, and change makers.
