Ms. Marquita was raised in Oakland and is overjoyed to return to UMCS for her 5th year. She is entering her 16th year of teaching, 9 of which have been Montessori. She graduated from San Francisco State University with a Bachelors in Psychology, followed by a Montessori credential in 2012, and finally a Master’s in Education and California Credential in 2018. She has a 10 year old son with Autism and tons of personality to go with it. In her free time she I enjoys Oakland Raider football, reading, writing, nature, and music.

He was an integral member of them UMAC after school team, and is excited to step into the classroom this year. He is eager to teach incoming students and set them up for success.
