REACH Academy

Grade & Subject: Teacher on Special Assignment

What inspires you?
The collective voices of our hard-working parents and families who often have the solutions to some of our most systemic complex problems in education.

Why are you excited to be a part of the Teacher Advisory Group working to make Oakland a better place for educators?
I wake up every day with a sense of purpose to ensure the voices and experiences of the families and students I serve are at the forefront of the work that I do in and out of REACH Academy. I’m excited to be a part of the TAG because I’ve made a commitment to the families and students in East Oakland in ensuring we recruit and retain the best teaching talent to work alongside them in the struggle towards a more equitable and just education.
