Tell us a little bit about you. Things you like outside of school, etc.…

Walking, reading, traveling, and photography


Give us an idea of your education passion, can you tell us something of why you chose education…

I became an educator because I love helping students understand the world a little better after we explored some more topics in mathematics. The knowledge of mathematics and the ability to think and problem solve open up a better understanding of the world around us. I also enjoy helping students discover that they actually “can do” math and that there is beauty in this universal language – there is no better experience than to see a student finally understand a concept in math they might have struggled with for a long time.


To help you feel better what do you like? Card, Starbucks, candy, prayer, etc.… list as many things as you wish

A card or Starbucks or maybe a book with logic puzzles would be nice


To help you with supplies, what items are you wanting?
