Much of my experience thus far has been to help me better indicate each of the partial and interesting ways students can come to learn math and use that as an access point to further develop students' conceptual understanding. My passion focuses on creating experiences in math education that are more fruitful and equitable and providing my students with the resources and language to be able to express themselves mathematically. I want to provide my students with the space to be confident in that they bring a wealth of knowledge about math to the classroom from the start of the session, and that my job merely is to facilitate and help them build on that knowledge.

I enjoy tackling a difficult math riddle or puzzle. I also enjoy learning about new ways to live a healthier life. I really enjoy traveling (especially when it involves camping and museums)!
