Learning Without Limits 

Grade & Subject: 1st grade

What inspires you?
I am inspired by the countless extra hours that teachers, students and their families invest in advocating for Oakland schools. The community is demanding that students are raised to question, innovate and speak truth to power and we all play a part in that work.

Why are you excited to be a part of the Teacher Advisory Group working to make Oakland a better place for educators?
I am excited to be a part of the teacher advisory group because I know that when teachers are empowered to do their best work, the children in our community thrive. Teacher retention is an equity issue and solving this problem in Oakland has a direct impact on our children’s future.
