My family would say that I’m intelligent. I am very observant… and happy. I have a good sense of humor.” She says that the most important thing in her life would be “My family and my own happiness.” Although her students are her family, her real and immediate family consists of her mom, dad, two brothers, and sister.

She was born and raised in Fullerton, and currently lives in the same neighborhood she grew up in. After twelfth grade, Miss Muñoz got her Bachelor’s degree Master’s at Cal State Fullerton.
