I grew up in rural New Mexico playing sports, skiing, camping, and hiking. I spent every year in high school tutoring kindergarten through 12th grade students in Spanish, English, writing, music, science (geology, earth science, biology, chemistry, environmental science, and medical science), math (general, algebra 1 and 2, trigonometry, physics, and calculus), and history (economics, civics, and NM, US, and world history). I also worked with 3- to 7-year olds as a ski instructor and day camp counselor and studied abroad in Australia as a People To People Student Ambassador. I graduated as valedictorian and moved to Santa Barbara, California to study aquatic biology at UCSB, where I graduated with honors in aquatic zoology. During college I learned to surf and worked at day camps as a science (marine biology, zoology, biology, entomology, astrology, and geology) curriculum developer and teacher. I also worked as a private tutor for 8- to 12-year olds in English, math, and science. Upon graduating I applied for and was accepted into the alternative teaching education program Teach For America; I was placed in Oklahoma City as a secondary math teacher and spent time teaching algebra 1 and 7th grade math and tutoring 7th-12th grade students in math (general, pre-algebra, algebra 1 and 2, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus), English, and science (chemistry and biology). After completing the Teach For America program, I moved to Los Angeles and worked as an after-school elementary teacher and tutor for kindergarten through 3rd grade. Currently I am teaching high school algebra 1 and serving as the leader for my content team at Cleveland High School in Rio Rancho, NM.
