A graduate of Biola University with a Bachelor’s degree in Education, I have been trained as a creative teacher, educated in developmental and counseling theories, and skilled in programming and leadership. As a leader and pastor in youth ministry, I refined my abilities as a teacher, gained valuable experience understanding the needs of students, and led a team of adult leaders. My experience as a substitute teacher and Sylvan instructor, allowed for the acquisition of skills in classroom management and individualized instruction. I gained further appreciation for the special needs of students, applying academic and behavioral supports as a one-to-one aide for a child with autism. After enrolling in the Los Angeles Unified School District Intern Program, I earned my Clear Level II Education Specialist credential; gaining effective, practical experience creating a classroom environment that promoted student success, implementing differentiated instructional strategies, and scaffolding curricular content for diverse learners. I have completed my Master’s degree in Curriculum & Instruction at California State University, Long Beach furthering my instructional expertise, as well as gaining an understanding in best practices for creating curriculum that educates the whole student. Finally, I have pursued a credential in  Educational Administration to further my growth as an educational leader. I'm proud to be a part of the Sea King family, to encourage the pursuit of academic excellence, student health and wellness, rich athletic traditions, and technological ingenuity. Go Sea Kings!
