Welcome to South Gate Middle School!!

Welcome to South Gate Middle School! I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing summer. I am excited to have you in my class and am looking forward to an awesome year.


I have been teaching for 6 years. This is my first year teaching at South Gate Middle School. In case you want to know where I am from: I was born in L.A. I was raised in South Gate and 3 years ago I moved to Whittier. I went to South Gate Middle and South Gate High School. I attended CSULB (Go Beach!) and CSUDH (Go Toros!). I am excited to share with you my love for mathematics and science in the upcoming year.


This summer I went to visit my friends and family. I watched many hours of tv and slept late. I also went to Italy for 3 weeks, which I will be sharing some pictures of Pompeii once we start learning about volcanoes.


We will have a fantastic year together. I look forward to knowing you better throughout the year. If you have any questions, feel free to email me or see me after class. I am always here to help. Together, we will succeed.
