I graduated from California State University of Fresno in 2013 with my Bachelor’s degree in Teaching and continued my education at East Carolina University to obtain my teaching license here in North Carolina. 

Some fun facts about me:

~One of my favorite hobbies is drawing/reading.

~I am a very creative and open-minded person.
