Degrees and Certifications:
BA in Elementary Education from University of Arizona Science Single Subject Credential
I immigrated from the Philippines in 1991 at the age of 19. I received my bachelor's degree in education at the University of Arizona in 1999. I first taught as an 8th grade Science teacher in Tucson. My family moved to Folsom, CA, in 2004. My family consists of my husband, a college junior, an 11th grader, an 8th grader, and a dog.
During shelter-in-place, I developed confidence in growing plants (I usually kill plants by accident). My family created a vegetable garden and we are currently growing tomatoes, lemongrass and some herbs.
This is my 5th year at Mitchell Middle as a Science teacher.
