11th Grade History
11th Grade Lead
Hello! I am the American History teacher at New West. I started teaching in 2015. I graduated from UCLA with a B.A. in Sociology with a minor in Education and Chicana/o studies in 2014. I also earned a Masters degree in Education in 2016 from UCLA, along with a Single Subject Teaching Credential in Social Science. I also earned an additional Masters Degree in Educational Leadership along with an Administrative Credential.
I taught 7th and 8th Grade History for 6 years at a charter school. I was awarded Teacher of the Year in 2020. I enjoy teaching history because it allows me to really challenge my students to question the world around them.
I was born and raised in Los Angeles, Ca. I have a 13 year old daughter, who is my world. I enjoy reading and watching movies, really anything that allows me to relax on my couch. I also enjoy spending time with my family, especially my adorable little nephews.
I am looking forward to the new school year!
