I've been a teacher 10 years at YES Prep North Central, a high-achieving, urban, public charter school in Houston, TX. I've taught 6th grade math, 7th grade math, 8th grade math, and 8th/9th grade Algebra I. I have also written curriculum for both 7th and 8th grade math, and coached both middle and high school mathematics teachers.
I firmly believe that all students can learn math to the highest levels. An engaging lesson and a passionate teacher are a potent combination for convincing kids that there is no such thing as a "math gene"!

B.A. in Mathematics from Denison University, with a minor in Economics.
In my (minimal) spare time, I love to read, cook, play video games, and binge-watch the latest that Netflix has to offer!
