Mrs. Sagliani is thrilled to be a part of the EQ4 Founding Team. She is a Los Angeles native and has a special connection to Pico Union. Her mother immigrated from El Salvador and Pico Union was her first residence. Her mother and father started their journey together in Pico Union. After graduating from the University of California, Irvine with a BA in Drama and a minor in Education, she decided to go back to school in hopes of pursuing a career in teaching. She won the Golden Apple Award at Cal State University, Los Angeles during her credential program, which motivated her to become an amazing teacher. She has taught in Koreatown and Culver City for the past five years and is returning to teach 5th grade after teaching both 3rd and 4th grades. She is excited to start teaching and is ready to help scholars reach their goals. She feels that scholars have the potential to be great leaders of their communities and cannot wait to see them shine. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family, doing origami, going to the beach, and creating her next DIY project.
