I believe that classrooms, even in high school, should be run by students who are driving their own learning. Everything we do should foster curiosity, encourage students to discover, and be culturally relevant. I specialize in urban, public ed. and private ed. My experience includes: 7th-12th NCTM and CCSS, 8th-10th grade integrated math, and Phillips Exeter Harkness Math 1 & 2. Currently, I'm an instructional coach for Career and Technical Education teachers (applied math!).
I live for project based learning and using Math to better understand real world scenarios. Most of my resources are exploratory; students must look for patterns to help them solve problems or draw conclusions. I never give away an answer!

I attended a private school from 2nd to 12th grade. I received my Bachelor's degree from Illinois Wesleyan University and my Masters in Secondary Math Education from Johns Hopkins University.
I am proud to be a Teach For America alumna who continues to educate.
