TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Teaching is my second career. I have been teaching all levels of high school math since 2011. Recently, I went back to school and got an administration degree. For ten years, I was a professional entertainer singing The Great American Songbook for seniors in Boston, MA.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Innovation and humor are two hallmarks of my teaching style. I am constantly trying new things and using humor to connect with students. I believe students must be part of the process. I look for ways to engage students and give them ownership over their learning. I love the direction this focus has been taking my classes.
