I was born in the Philippines and growing up I lived on various Air Force bases around the United States: Idaho, California, and Florida, until we finally settled and made the desert our home.
My passion for reading led me to the University of Arizona’s College of Education, where I pursued my Bachelors of Arts in Education with a focus in English. After teaching 7th grade English Language Arts, I had the opportunity of working as an inclusion specialist and I later obtained a post-degree certificate in special education. I have taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade both as a resource teacher and inclusion specialist. Last year, I joined the Sycamore family and I’m excited to embark on my second year.
