About Me

I majored in Biology and graduated with both a BS and an MS from California State University Dominguez Hills.  I worked in a pathology lab at Harbor UCLA Medical Center for three years.  I received my preliminary teaching credential in biological sciences from UCLA Center X with a Social Justice emphasis. I also have a chemistry teaching credential. I believe that my teacher program prepared me to address the social and academic needs of my students.  I taught in South Los Angeles for 12 years.  I began teaching at Emerson Community Charter Middle School in the fall of 2014.  I believe that everyone can learn if given a fair opportunity. I try to instill a love for learning and a need for students to stay socially aware and scientifically literate.


I teach one period of Honors I teach two periods of Honors 8th Grade Science, and three periods of 8th Grade Integrated Science.  This year all classes and lessons are developed to meet the requirements of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).  I am also a Leadership academy teacher.  My Academy Time class is School Event Planning.
