North Carolina, United States
I'm a Maryland-born, North Carolina-raised daughter of Philippine immigrants who is making it one day at a time through her second year of teaching.
I was lucky enough to be brought to a school that offered me opportunities not only to learn from experienced, loving, caring educators, but also the space to come into my own in this challenging and ever-changing career.
Every day is a challenge, keeping me on my toes. But that's also what drives me to go to that next level and do whatever it takes to nurture my first graders into thoughtful, kind, respectful individuals with a thirst for knowledge.
