Ledesma Elementary

I have been teaching grade 4 , 5 and 6 for 18 years. I currently teach at Ledesma Elementary. It has been my honor to serve OGEA in the past as Parliamentarian, PIC Chair, Bargaining Team member and Grievance Team member. I have been the Bargaining Chair for the past 8 years and I now look forward to the additional challenge of Vice President. I believe that education is stronger when we have a seat at the table. OGEA Members are the experts, and our ideas and concerns need to be thoughtfully represented. 
United we bargain. Divided we beg.

I am thrilled to be elected and serve as your OGEA Secretary. As a South Asian and a South San Jose native, I feel grateful to be working amongst a community I hold closely. Before joining OGSD, I received my B.A. from UC Berkeley and my M.A. and Multiple Subject Teaching Ceredential from Santa Clara University.
I currently teach second grade at Baldwin and served as Site Rep for two years. As the former LGBTQ+ COntact and a proud OGEA Member, I see the strength and capacity of our membership and as Secretary I convey that voice and vision for the common good.
