With an undergraduate degree from UC Berkeley in Economics & Education and an M. Ed in Teaching from UCLA, education has always been my passion. How do we make learning accessible, exciting, and equitable for every child? I began my career by teaching elementary and middle school math and science, where I became an advocate for excellent school leadership and accountability. Now at EdTec, we partner with schools in every capacity from data, AP, payroll, financial analysis, charter renewals, to school services. I am grateful every day to work with amazing school leaders to provide the best programming for every student.
