Wileen moved from New York City to California to join AmeriCorps in Salinas, CA. There, she found a love of working students by being their literacy tutor. She really enjoyed teaching her students creative writing where her students found a way to express themselves. After teaching in Salinas, she moved to San Jose where she is currently a science teacher at Rocketship Mosaic. She is looking forward to spending this summer encouraging students to find their inner muse and creativity.
