I am excited to extend my teaching career at Summit Intermediate School as an 
eighth grade language arts 
and history teacher! I recently obtained my multiple subject teaching 
credential from California State University, San Bernardino. I also obtained 
my Bachelor's degree in Liberal 
Studies at Cal State in preparation for teaching in the Kindergarten to 
Eighth grade classroom. I love 
teaching and working with the youth to lead and guide the next generation in 
furthering their education, 
exercising and extending their responsibilities, and empowering them to rise 
up in becoming mature, 
responsible, and educated individuals. 

I am beyond excited to extend my teaching career in the Etiwanda School 
District because it is very near 
and dear to my heart. I have been a part of the Etiwanda School District from 
first grade where I attended 
Windrows Elementary, to Intermediate School where I attended Etiwanda 
Intermediate (yes I know, I wish it 
was Summit). I am excited to work with faculty and staff that invested in my 
own education as an 
elementary and middle school student, and am just as dedicated to invest in 
the students in my own 
classroom. My goal is provide students with the most effective learning 
environments, educational 
experiences, as well as opportunities to support individual growth and 
development inside and out of the 
classroom.
