I grew up in the city of Lynwood, CA where I received my formal K-12 education. I went to Cal State University, Long Beach for my undergraduate education: Biology and Chicano/ Latino Studies, and my graduate education: Science education. I’m currently going into my 18th year of teaching. Ever since I was a child I always liked science because of my knack for researching and figuring out how things worked. I am a Life-Long Learner!!
