What I love about teaching at Holy Family School:
At Holy Family, the students are respectful and always eager to learn. The experiences of teaching and learning are both academic and spiritual and this has helped me in all areas of my life.
This year I’m excited to teach Technology to grades 1 to 5. I love the idea of integrating classroom instruction with technology. In my tech classes, my goal is to create a learning environment where students are actively engaged, and growing in knowledge.

Why I became a teacher:
The teachers in my family, which includes my mom inspired me to take up this profession. Their passion and dedication taught me many a lesson. I love the fact that teachers can mold their students into kind, thoughtful and responsible beings. To create that positive impact in a child’s life is what I always strive for.

Favorite Scripture Verse:
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; counsel you with my loving eye on you” - Psalm 32:8

Began teaching in 2011

Teaching at Holy Family since 2022

What I love about teaching humanities at Holy Family School:

Students are so eager and excited to develop their skills and abilities as young readers and writers.  Teaching about early civilizations gets students curious about and engaged with the earliest developments of humankind. Students begin to see the vast accomplishments of humanity, and also realize the importance of social connections.

Why I became a teacher:

I love working with young people. Being able to mentor the younger generation and help them along as they journey through their academic years is truly a blessing.

Favorite Scripture Verse:

“Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.” - 1 Corinthians 16:13

Teaching Experience:
I started my teaching career after I completed my master’s degree in India. I taught math to bachelor’s degree students for a year. Then I taught 11th and 12th grade math for 5 years. Once I moved to the US, I tutored students of varying ages, kindergarten through high school. I worked as a Pre-K teacher before I joined Holy Family in 2020.

Why I became a teacher:
I believe that becoming a teacher is a calling from above. Teachers empower children to find the potential within and shape them into the adults they will become. I cherish the funny comments made by my students, the experiences my students and I share together in our classroom, and the insightful questions that they ask. I celebrate my students’ accomplishments and I am passionate about making a difference in the lives of children.

Favorite Scripture Verse:
"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.” - Ephesians 2:10.

Education
B.A., Biblical and Theological Studies, Biola University
High School Youth Minister at Holy Family since 2022

What I love about teaching at Holy Family School:
I love getting to teach the Old Testament, New Testament, and Church History to students in Middle School. It is a time of lightbulbs turning on, connections being made, and realization of the foundation of our Catholic faith. “Hey! We say that in mass” moments are the best!

Why I became a teacher:
Having worked in youth ministry for the past few years, I have enjoyed seeing spirits come alive as students discovered new depths to their faith. Getting to step into a classroom with students during the week is an amazing opportunity to dive deeper with students and return to the foundations of our faith more consistently.

Favorite Scripture Verse:
"I pray not only for them, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, so that they may all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you, that they also may be in us, that the world may believe that you sent me." - John 17:20-21
