I grew up in Temple City and went to Longden, Oak and TCHS. I played little league baseball, flag football at Oak, played water polo and swam in high school. From there, I found my way to Cal Poly Pomona to study Physical Education and Kinesiology and received my BS degree. While at Cal Poly, I was active in intramural sports and played on the Cal Poly Rugby Club team. After a few years of working away from education, I switched gears and started substitute teaching for TC schools. I was officially hired as a teacher in 2000 and decided it would be a good idea to further my education and started working on my Masters degree. I received my MS degree in Multicultural Education in 2004.
Teaching PE is the best job. I get to be outside, I exercise all day, I get to teach kids how to be healthy and hopefully they will learn what it takes to maintain a healthy lifestyle throughout their lives.
