I am a student at San Diego State University pursuing my Multiple Subjects Preliminary Teaching Credential. I love helping and working with children. I am currently doing my pre-student teaching in a 3rd/4th grade seminar class, and in the fall I will be student teaching in a 2nd grade classroom. I also have a passion for sports, especially soccer, basketball, and football.
