I’m excited and proud to be an associate of Dr. Sundar’s Math Center. This is my 21st year of teaching for Ceres Unified School District, and my 6th year as a teacher consultant for the Great Valley Writing Project. I lead an afterschool STEAM Team for Hidahl Elementary School. I continue to learn more about writing because every discipline requires excellent communication skills. I plan to merge everything STEAM into our Young Writers  Workshop. I’ve helped many young writers and mathematicians discover the joy of learning through hands-on experiences. Full STEAM ahead!
