Why did I choose to work in Education? 
Growing up in East San Jose, both my parents with a third grade education, and living well below poverty level, I would not be as successful as I am today without the love, guidance and support I received from my teachers, coaches, and academic counselors.  I want to give back to my community and inspire today's youth to be the best version of themselves.  I enjoy the countless conversations I have with students and planting positive seeds in students minds daily.  "Se Si Puede"
 
My Interest and Hobbies
I love watching college and NFL football in the fall and winter.  In the spring and summer, I enjoy smoking food on my Traeger, biking, and taking my kids to the park.  I love and value spending time with all my family and friends.
