I'm a Special Education teacher with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology, a Master's degree in Special Education from California State University, Northridge. I'm fully credentialed in Science and Mathematics. I'm working on my Doctoral Degree at USC within the field of Educational Leadership.

This is my ten year working at Lincoln High School, prior to that, I worked at Crescenta Valley high school in Glendale, Ca. for 3 years.

This is my 13th year as a teacher and my 26th year working with children: I started as an after-school tutor, then onto a toddler room assistant to a classroom teacher's assistant and now a teacher...

A little history on me...my Grandfather came from Agua Calientes, Mexico and built my Grandmother a house in Lincoln Heights flattop on Thomas st. in the 1930's (My Father's parents). He also planted the majority of the trees up on the hill of Thomas st.

My other grandmother is Native American from Central California and my grandfather is from Guadalajara, Mexico...

I feel with my nationality and life-experience I can relate and understand the students at Lincoln High school.
