I’m currently principal of an Elementary School in Lawndale, CA and I enjoy all things Leadership and Learning! This is my 21st year in education and I’ve had the pleasure of serving in a number of positions including that of a classroom teacher, bilingual and reading specialist, an assistant principal and a principal. The role of principal is the most challenging and rewarding experience of my career. I absolutely love it. I recently graduated from Loyola Marymount University with an ED. D in Educational Leadership for Social Justice. My goal as an instructional leader is to empower teachers and staff as learners and leaders. Simply put, empowered teachers empower our students. I'm thrilled to be part of the Redesign Challenge because it will allow educators to share fantastic ideas and to learn from each other. I look forward to learning and growing my professional learning network with you.
