Greetings Knight Family! The 2019/2020 school term begins the 19th year of my career at Lynwood High School as an Academic Counselor.
I grew up in this community and I am also an alumna of Lynwood High School, which I am proud to say, paved the way for my professional career. After graduating high school, I attended CSU Dominguez Hills, where I completed studies for my Bachelor’s Degree. Soon after, I began working in the Superintendent’s Office at the Compton Unified School District and also at a variety of schools serving students through numerous roles at the elementary, community day and other secondary and post-secondary school levels, which included, substitute teaching and elementary school teacher.
While working in Compton, I joined a cohort of students at Azusa Pacific University, where I began my studies to pursue a Master’s Degree in Education and a PPS Credential in School Counseling. After earning this degree, I returned home to Lynwood High School and this is where I began my extensive school counseling career, once again, as a Royal Lynwood Knight.
My experience in teaching and in high school and adult school counseling have provided me with valuable insight about the way students learn, behave, and succeed. I have a strong passion for working with the most challenging students. My role as a school counselor has truly been rewarding and I am excited to be working in the community where I was born, raised and where students, teachers, administrators, and parents are vested in each child’s educational success. My belief is to always encourage all students to strive to achieve their goals.
As always, I wish everyone an amazing school year!
