Kindergarten Lead Teacher

Hello! I’m so excited to join as a Lead this year for Kindergarten. After spending 8 years of my career working in arts education non-profit management, II earned my teaching credential at Antioch University Los Angeles. Three years ago, I joined CWC Mar Vista as a Teaching Associate and have loved being a part of this community. I was drawn to CWC because of their core values of Community and Authenticity, and their emphasis on social justice and social emotional development. In my teaching, I hope to inspire students to always be wondering and asking questions and really sparking their curiosity! It’s extremely important to me that students feel safe and valued in my classroom, and I can’t wait to connect with all of you this year! 

When I’m not teaching, you can find me exploring Los Angeles (my home for 11 years now!), in the desert hiking, or kayaking, as well as spending time with my friends.
