What inspires you?
The children I work with inspire me. They are a happy bunch of special education, English Language learners, first generation students and survivors; the commonality being low income. The make my day, everyday.
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 TAG because it’s an avenue where I can have a voice for teachers in the Early Childhood Department, a group that is often left out. In addition the fact that I am in a position to push for equity and positive change is also a motivational factor.
