What inspires you?
I’m inspired by students and their families who left their homelands to come to the U.S., largely because of the promise of education and the opportunities it affords.

Why are you excited to be a part of the Teacher Advisory Group working to make Oakland a better place for educators?
I read somewhere once, “If you don’t feed the teachers, they will eat the children.” I want help teachers be fed with support, feedback, instructional tools, and success.
