I am in my 10th year as an educator and have held a variety of roles including classroom teacher (middle and high school), university student academic services coordinator, university teaching assistant, instructor for the College Success Foundation, as well as program and curriculum director of an after school tutoring program. I am currently teaching in a charter middle school in Tacoma, Washington. I am passionate about high quality math instruction for all students and hope to be able to help math teachers around the country with sharing curriculum and experiences as well as receiving feedback on their experiences with my work!
Above any pedagogical tag, my teaching style is to approach each day and each lesson from the heart to meet students where they are at. I have taught in a variety of ways and aim to keep things consistently varying in my delivery of lessons rather than rooted in one philosophical teaching approach. I do find that I tend toward inquiry based and complex instructional methods with a focus on student-centered classrooms and student-led instruction.
Outstanding Educator 2014, Rotary Teacher of the Year 2013.
I have a Masters degree in Teaching from Seattle University with a focus on mathematics education and am currently a Doctoral Candidate at Seattle University for my Ed.D in Educational Leadership. I am a lover of learning and leading and hope to use my educational experiences and background to continue growing in the classroom.
