1st Grade Teaching Associate
I knew at an early age that all I wanted to do was teach since I grew up in a family of teachers: her great-grandmother, grandma, sister, and dad were all teachers. While receiving my Multiple Subject Credential with a Minor in Human and Child Development at Cal State Long Beach, I was a private tutor for elementary and middle school students and still is. I have taught first grade in Santa Monica, was a Literacy Teacher for STAR, an Afterschool Specialist and Assistant AfterSchool Director for Champions, was a homeschool teacher (including homeschooling my own son ) for various Los Angeles families, and a daycare teacher. I still work part-time to provide child care services for Kiddie Corp and Skies the Limits. My educational journey has spanned working with babies all the way to middle school! I am a firm believer that the purpose of education is to create minds and lifelong learners.
