I am thrilled to be joining the St. Martin of Tours community this fall as the new kindergarten teaching assistant. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, attended Catholic schools from kindergarten through 12th grade, and graduated from UCLA this past June. Due to my love of working with children, I became interested in a career in education at an early age and started pursuing that interest while in high school. Since then, I have served as a camp counselor, Sunday school teacher, Director of Children’s Ministry, and most recently as a teaching assistant at the UCLA Early Care and Education Center. I look forward to learning and growing alongside my students this upcoming year as they continue to develop intellectually, socially, and spiritually.
