Aspire Monarch Academy

Grade & Subject: 2nd grade

What inspires you?
Like all teachers, I teach for my students. I teach because I want my students to know how they can make change – whether the world is ready or not! I teach because I never want to stop learning.

Why are you excited to be a part of the Teacher Advisory Group working to make Oakland a better place for educators?
Oakland’s educators are the foundation of Oakland’s schools. I am proud to work with public school educators from across the city to help make Oakland the best place to teach in the Bay.
