I am a 2001 Teach For America corps member in Houston, Texas. After joining the corps in 2001 as a 5th grade reading teacher, I have decided to remain in the classroom. I stayed at my placement school for three years and was then hired by YES Prep North Central in 2004 and have been here ever since. While at YES, I have taught 6th grade math, 7th grade math, and 7th grade science. I currently teach a video production and Photoshop course to high school students. Recently I founded a student-led video production company called yBlazer Studios. My students learn the art of video production while working with actual clients. We have produced videos for a number of clients such as YES Prep Public Schools, Uplift Education, ProMark Percussion, and Teach For America.
