Inspiration to teach:
My first students ever, from when I was an intern teacher at Breakthrough Collaborative in Miami, back in 2010. I still keep in touch with my kids to this day.
About my students:
I haven’t met them yet, but I am extremely excited to meet them. The first day of school couldn’t come any faster!
A phenomenal bunch of human beings who fight for social justice and equitable education.

Favorite Thing in the World To Do:
Eat calamari and dance like nobody is watching—though not at the same time.
Where can I buy snow boots?
