My Philosophy
recognizing that individuals learn differently, incorporating community into learning environment. I'm also very interested in allowing environmental concerns (recycling, global warming, etc) to play a role in education

My Community
Portola district, San Francisco: ethnically diverse, mostly residential area of SF. I live a block away from McLaren Park, 45 acres of parkland

My Environment
Leonard Flynn Elementary: language immersion school (Spanish), a Star school with limited resources that is changing each year due to more interest in immersion. Mostly Latino population, about 75% of children on free lunch

My Roles and Responsibilities
student teaching in a general ed kindergarten. I have also run a parent led visual arts program for the second grade as well as an art based summer camp.
