Degrees and Certifications:
I have a Masters in Microbiology from University of Mumbai, India. I spent six years working in the pharmaceutical industry researching in the area of novel antibiotics. I took a break from my active career to spend quality time with my children who attended the CUSD schools. During this time I volunteered in their schools and was introduced to the field of education. In 2013, I started my journey in education as an Instructional Assistant in the Cupertino School District. I enjoyed this experience of being actively involved in teaching and decided to pursue a degree in education. I received my Teaching Credentials from National University. I enjoy working with children and facilitate their learning at school. I am excited to teach fifth-grade at Faria. My other interests are gardening, traveling, and sampling and cooking different cuisines.
