1. How long have you been with St. HOPE? After serving three years in St. Louis, Missouri, I was fortunate enough to join St. HOPE in June 2016!
2. What is your commitment to urban education and why have you chose to work at SHPS? Prior to joining Teach For America, I was completely naive to the achievement gap that exists in our country. After deep-diving into the state of education in the US, I realized that it is my duty to serve the students in urban communities to ensure they receive the excellent education they deserve. All students can learn and can achieve, and we must give them that opportunity. I chose to continue this work at St. HOPE because California is my home and the place that I love. Being able to do this work here in Sacramento is so exciting because I am able to give back to the place that gave so much to me!
