I have been teaching in Monterey County for ten years. I have taught all levels of history 7-12 including Ethnic Studies. I was nominated for Monterey County teacher of the year for my work in ethnic studies and my advocacy for uninvited (marginalized) students. I have been an union representative and fought for the rights of my fellow colleagues.
As the representative for region 5 I will work to expand civic literacy and support implementation of the new Ethnic Studies curricula. I would like to support inter district meetings and lesson sharing within the region.
