I'm an LA native, although I've also lived in Portland, Japan and England. I earned a BA in Philosophy from UC Santa Cruz, and a MA in Special Education from CSUN. I've been a public school special education teacher for the past 13 years, and I love what I do! I do math in my spare time -- it's fun and relaxing! I strongly believe that every child can learn, and, as an educator, I make it my personal goal to make sure that my students connect with the material and find meaning in their learning. I also have a special affinity for homeschooling families and really appreciate the forward thinking mentality that often comes hand-in-hand with homeschoolers.
