My first experience teaching was in the water, helping my students learn to swim. I found that I loved teaching on land as well when I began volunteering as a math for bilingual students. Teaching is something that brings me joy because I believe there is a duality of discovery when working in this field. As a Masters student my favorite part of my role is serving as a Graduate Assistant, working one-on-one with students and watching them learn, conceptualize, and reconsider. I can't wait to work with you as well and help you along your intellectual journey!
