Grade & Subject: Kindergarten dual immersion

What inspires you?
I’m inspired by the transformative potential of education. In increasingly precarious times, it is our students who most powerfully demonstrate what we can make possible in our society and our world.

Why are you excited to be a part of the Teacher Advisory Group working to make Oakland a better place for educators?
I’m excited to work alongside other teachers to provide perspectives and craft solutions to problems that impact our work. As practitioners, our voices are critical to any conversation around how to improve education.
