I was born in the Philippines but spent most of my time growing up in Japan and California. I have nearly 20 years of teaching mathematics under my belt with prior experiences in New York City, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Berlin. I went into education with a social justice lens, working to combat systemic issues of inequity. I always consider myself a work in progress. I am here with my husband and three young children. Outside of the classroom, you might find me running, traveling, hip hop dancing, eating and then eating some more.
