I have been teaching at Mary Buren Elementary School since 1992. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from Loyola Marymount University. I continued my education by receiving my teaching credential from California Polytechnic State University and my California Clear Credential from the University of California Santa Barbara. I have also been involved in the Guadalupe Union School District's Leadership, Curriculum Council, and Teachers Association. I also coordinated the school's Star behavior program.
