ELLMA Team Members

  • I collaborate with Oakland's brilliant middle school educators. Our focus is improving instruction and outcomes for English Language Learners. I love seeing students grapple with new ideas and hearing them express complex thinking as a result of a teacher trying something new in the classroom.
  • I help provide direct support to unaccompanied immigrant students and coordinate school-based and community services that support them academically and socially. My favorite part of this work is working with a great team to support our students.
  • I support Language and Multilingual Literacy development for Oakland Unified School District. As a multilingual and Language Learner person myself, I enjoy supporting the Language needs of Language Learners. I also aspire to inspire and empower individuals and collectives to pursue the journey of becoming multilingual: to develop academic achievement and career opportunities in several languages, cultural awareness and sensitivity, emotional intelligence and flexibility, and advocacy to become social change agents.
  • I support our multilingual community in Oakland, especially Spanish learners. Our culturally and linguistically diverse students need strong multilingual skills to become biliterate and bilingual. I enjoy providing that support to help our scholars use their home languages and cultures as meaningful and powerful assets to their own learning.
