I have a background in mathematics education that includes teaching at the junior high, high school and collegiate level. I received my credential and Master's Degree in an intensive program at the University of California at Santa Cruz; an institution well known for its excellent education department and strong emphasis on student-directed, project-based learning. I was a multiple-subject educator at a small, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded, non-traditional charter school at the forefront of the project-based, standards-based, early-college movement. I have taught students of all ages in traditional and non-traditional settings.
Everything I do with my students is designed to build confidence, develop critical thinking skills and encourage them to believe they can succeed. I strive to see each student as a talented individual and help them to develop a love for learning and a strong belief in their own potential.
