About Me

I studied History at Arizona State University, where I had the opportunity to be involved in Undergraduate Student Government, as well as intern at the State Legislature. I love current events.

What about the residency are you most looking forward to?

I am looking forward to joining my district's 'Building Men' Program. I grew up without a father figure in my life and I believe it is really important to have someone to look up to. I am also looking forward to working with my faculty and creating learning environments suitable for my students.

Did you have a teacher who made a lasting impression on you?

She encouraged me to apply for college, even though I did not believe college would become an opportunity for me, let alone graduate school. This is why I want to become a teacher.
