About the Teacher

I am very excited to be starting my second year teaching kindergarten at Melrose! I grew up volunteering in my mom's kindergarten classroom and have loved getting the opportunity to teach kindergarten myself! I earned my B.A in Psychology from UC Berkeley and my teaching credential and Masters in Urban Education from UCLA. I was honored to be chosen as Rookie of the Year for LAUSD last year and am looking forward to another great year!
