I was blessed to attend Catholic schools for elementary and high school. In second grade I realized I wanted to be a teacher and have learned lots from all my teachers since then. I went to California State University, Dominguez Hills where I obtained my BS Mathematics: Math Education. After, I received my single subject credential for mathematics and multiple subject credential.
I was able to teach high school math in Los Angeles for three years. Here I taught numerous subjects including: CAHSEE math, algebra II, trigonometry, math analysis, and geometry. After, I was fortunate to teach fourth grade at my elementary school for two years. It was amazing to continue to learn from and work along side my old teachers. It was here, I was reminded of the feeling of family, love, and compassion that Catholic schools provide. I spent the 2015 – 2016 year teaching 6th grade homeroom (science, religion, grammar) and middle school history as I was interested in middle school.
I have been fortunate to return to the math classroom here at OLPH beginning in 2016. I look forward to working through the challenging topics with the students. I know math takes dedication and time, so diligence is always needed. I am excited as we delve more into the Next Generation Science Standards and incorporate STEM to more classrooms.
