I’m an educator by trade. An engaged educator who aligns with those who believe that activism is an important component of the teaching profession. Yes, I am one of those educators who sees the line between politics and life, teaching and civic commitment collapsing into each other. Therefore, I see my self as an activist. I frequently join those in our community who are committed to the voices of those who are usually left out of the official narratives of power.
As an educator, I practice a pedagogy that centers on the ideas of freedom, justice, and democracy. I have been teaching for the last fifteen years for various community colleges at LACCD.
I attended California State University Northridge for both my Bachelor Degree in Business and my Master of Arts in Political Philosophy & Theory. After graduate school, I spent a year in a fellowship with the very prestigious Coro Foundation-a nationally renowned institution that focuses on leadership development in public affairs. As a Coro Fellow here in Los Angeles, I studied communities and I interacted with leaders from non-profit, business, and government organizations.
