I have been an Instructional Assistant for the past three years, teach Spanish to all the children and coordinate the before and after school programs. I was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington and am of Filipino decent. I moved to Oregon where I attended Pacific University and fell in love with the Forest Grove area. After discovering my calling to work with children, I spent nine years working in early childhood education. Initially, I found St. Francis School working part-time in the afterschool program.
I live with my family in the coast range foothills. We are active parishioners of St. Francis where we sing in the choir and a member of the Pastoral Council. We have a child who attends St. Francis School. I enjoy gardening, exercising, music and reading.
