With over 14 years in early education, I have had the privilege of teaching children from birth to high school. I received my AA in Early Childhood Education and my BA from San Jose State University in Child and Adolescent Development. I have predominantly taught in the Junior Kindergarten department but also specialized in tutoring for reading, comprehension, and executive functioning. I look forward to expanding my skills here at San Jose Christian!
I was born and raised in San Jose, CA. I moved to Long Beach for a year where I ended up meeting my now husband! We are recently married but have known one another for nine years. In my free time, I enjoy every moment being outdoors and find myself happiest when I am in nature, especially at the beach. I love hiking, yoga, and Pilates. I also love to cook and try new recipes. I am a major foodie and will always say yes to sushi!
Christian Philosophy of Education
As a firm believer in the Lord, I believe that establishing the Christian faith starts at a very early age. Having had the opportunity to attend Christian schools and now teach in a Christian community, I see how vital it is to enfold these students each day. As educators, we have the ability to pour into these students toward creating the beauty of God's kingdom. As a Christian teacher, I will continuously teach God's love in order to establish and inspire creativity, a desire for growth, spiritual development, and educational success. I will establish a foundation that is not merely words but also deeds, as I truly believe that our actions carry out the word of God. I pray that each student and family who walk into my classroom leaves knowing that they can inspire and move mountains outside of San Jose Christian. Having this understanding will allow them to grow and thrive as they mature and evolve into mature and educated learners of the Lord.
