TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a teacher at Hamburg Area School District since 2007. I graduated from Penn State in 1998 with a B.S. in Marketing and worked as a financial advisor with Morgan Stanley and a pharmaceutical sales representative until I became a mathematics teacher.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I encourage the kids to think through challenging problems. I want them to struggle and persevere. I put on 4 shows a day, and if I don't entertain my audience, then I didn't do my job.
