Hi! I’ll tell you right now, I am a self-proclaimed romantic. I love literature, anything Disney and spending weekends at the beach. A native Angelino, I have lived in a Los Angeles Suburb most of my life. I studied American Literature at UCLA. After travelling around and a number of pointless jobs, I am in the process of achieving my Master’s in English and hope to become a High School English Teacher, Community College Professor or both.
What am I passionate about? Well, a number of things. First, growing up with two disabled siblings allowed me to develop a soft spot for special education and I now spend my time working with special ed kids at a local high school. Second, I believe that academics play a vital role in the development of a well-functioning and enlightened population. My drive for teaching comes from inspiring kids to develop their own unique view of the world and to never stop learning and developing their own philosophies about life, love and happiness.
