I am the Special Education Teacher for the Autism class at Belmont. This is my first year teaching at the school, and I am excited for this new adventure! I came to the United States from the Philippines in 2004 and lived in Los Angeles since then until 2013. I moved to San Luis Obispo for a teaching position and stayed there for two years then I decided to move back to Los Angeles, which I consider my home. I value respect, safety and being responsible in my classroom. My goal is to create a positive learning experience for all my students. Aside from respect, safety and being responsible, I also value relationships. I believe that having good school-home relationship is vital to student success. I strongly believe in TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More)!
