Gifted 3rd Grade Teacher

My Bio

I was born and raised in Oxnard, California. In 2016 I decided to move to Phoenix, AZ and attend Grand Canyon University. This is where I got my Bachelor's in Educational Studies. The reason I decided to become a teacher is because of the many influential people who helped me grow. I am passionate about learning in new fun ways to encourage the students. When I am not teaching, I love going to the movies or enjoying nature. I really love hiking, different scenery is beyond beautiful. I am so happy to be in this San Tan family and very confident that it will be an amazing time!
