What inspires you?
As corny as it sounds, I am inspired by the hope for a different, a better, future.

Why are you excited to be a part of the Teacher Advisory Group working to make Oakland a better place for educators?
Edward Everett Hale said, “I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.” I can’t change all that is broken and dysfunctional in Oakland schools, but I can TRY to be part of the movements for change in the experiences of our children.
