Having been born and raised in Los Angeles, I now proudly call New York City my home. I’ve been an elementary school teacher a little over 20 years, having taught grades first through fifth in Los Angeles and here in New York City.
A hobby that I’m passionate about is writing. I thank my middle school English teacher, Mr. Roger Lawson, for introducing me to poetry writing. He taught me how to use the very powerful tool of written expression.
What else about me? I have a love of music. I’m someone who has an adventurous spirit. I enjoy everything ranging from traveling, to sports to collecting sneakers. I love to read, I love to learn, I love people, and I love life. At the end of the day, I’m proud of and love the person that I see in the mirror.
