About Me

In January 2005, I acquired my Bachelor of Arts degree from San Francisco State University in Liberal Studies with emphasis in language, literature, and communication, while attaining a minor in speech and communication.  In May of 2006, I received my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from San Francisco State University and in 2009 acquired my Master of Arts in Education, emphasizing in Instructional Technology from the same university.

            This is my sixth year teaching at Allen Elementary School within the San Bruno Park School District.  I am excited to be involved working with a wonderful class of students.  I enjoy integrating technology into classroom assignments and lessons, additionally having students participate in project-based learning activities.  Our groups have been nominated for a variety of awards and won first place in the California Student Media Festival in 2009 under Best Use of Interactive Media <http://www.mediafestival.org/43mm.shtml>.

         In addition to carrying out regular classroom duties, I serve on the school’s Leadership Team, the district’s Curriculum Council, and on the district’s Technology Committee.  I carry out duties that include setting site plans and goals, review and recommend new curricula, and assist in writing and revising technology plans.  Furthermore, I actively taught and customized lessons in several after school intervention academies, teaching language arts and mathematics to various grades of students in need of extra support.
