In the past 7 years I have worked with students from grades Pre kindergarten through 10th in math, reading and writing. I graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 2014, where I majored in Sociology and minored in Education and History. Afterwards, I returned to the Bay Area, in California, and began working for an Americorps program as a classroom support and after school class teacher. I worked with students in English and History classes and provided homework help for 30 minutes everyday after school. It was this opportunity that made me realize how much I enjoyed working with students and how necessary it is to ensure every student has access to quality education. I decided to join a teaching preparation program in Baltimore, where I earned a Masters in Education for both Elementary Education grades 1-6th and Special Education grades K-8th while teaching for 2 years. I then became a site coordinator for a tutoring center in a Baltimore city school that focuses on improving literacy in grades K-4. I currently am a program manager for that program, who oversees the tutoring of multiple school sites.
I love helping students because nothing is more rewarding than when the light bulb in their head finally turns on because you gave them to tools they needed to understand a new concept or skill. I am someone who is engaging, creative and organized who will motivate and guide students. I genuinely enjoy getting to know every student of all abilities so that I'm able to meet their needs and showcase their strengths.
