    Teacher Biography
    Welcome back to school!
    This school year, 2019-2020, I am teaching English 10th Academic with Ms. Lin, Mr. Kaberline, Ms. Abu-Bader and Ms. Gittelman.  I am also a case manager to some students.  This is my sixth year at Freedom High School and my tenth in Virginia as a special education and English teacher.  I was also a resource specialist in California for three years and in the US Virgin Islands for two years. 
    Before coming to the United States in 2006, I worked as an ESL (English as Second Language) teacher in the Philippines for thirteen years, where I earned my master's degree in Education major in English at the University of the Philippines (Visayas) in 1998.  I have also completed a second master's degree in Special Education in California State University Bakersfield in 2010.
