|My road to the teaching profession was a long and meandering one. My first career was in the United States Navy, where I was stationed on an aircraft carrier in Yokosuka, Japan. After being discharged from the Navy, I went to college at Western Washington University, earning a degree in History and Social Studies. After college, I spent time in the service industry. I then became a substitute teacher, and discovered the joy of working with young people. Now, I am a full time Math and Social Studies teacher.
I chose to work at Academia Cesar Chavez in order to work alongside quality educators and industrious students. Every time I set foot in an ACC classroom, I am inspired by how hard our scholars work to become the best version of themselves. ACC’s mission of cultivating a spirit of familia has created a unique learning environment, resulting in a sense of community I have not felt at other schools. Of the many institutions I have been a part of in my professional life, ACC is the one I am most proud of.
