Esther grew up in Los Angeles, California where she thought that she would one day spend her life in music as a violinist. After joining Teach for America, and teaching at Rocketship Mosaic, she realized that she was inspired daily by her students’ persistence and the consistent engagement of their families. With the support of families and the deep belief that every student can succeed, Esther realized her passion for teaching.
In 2015, Esther joined the founding team at Rocketship Redwood City Prep and is motivated by the growth that her students make every year. She is grateful for the bravery of every family and student and she continues to be a proud Rocketeer.
Esther earned her Bachelor’s degree from USC and her Master’s degree from Columbia, Teacher’s College.
