Rosa Huezo was born and raised in Southern California, moving to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2007. She earned her Master's Degree in Education in 2015 from San Francisco State University. She has worked as a bilingual Learning and Education Specialist in both independent and public schools for over a decade. During her 6 years working at Mission High School in San Francisco's Mission District, Rosa taught several study skills classes where students learned: organizational skills, project planning, note and test taking skills, work and time management strategies, and setting and completing academic and personal goals.
As an educator, she believes that in order for students to succeed, they must understand their unique learner profile. This helps students build on their strengths which in turn helps them tackle their areas of growth. Establishing a relationship of trust and respect, Rosa hopes to help her students develop self-advocacy skills that persist throughout their educational journey and beyond. She believes that all students can succeed when provided with the proper supports to meet their needs.
In her spare time she enjoys cooking, reading science fiction, watching films, and roller skating.
