I graduated from the University of Puget Sound with a Bachelor's of Art in Sociology, and from Northcentral University with a Master's in Education. I have been teaching math and coaching football in Fort Worth for the past 8 years. My favorite part of teaching is helping student realize their potential. I believe in a growth mindset and high expectations. At my current school, I specialize in teaching the group of students who failed their 8th grade End of Course exam; I take this group and use high expectations and great relationships to help them pass their 9th grade Algebra 1 STAAR. Over each of the last three years we have improved our scores and put these students on track for a good math experience the rest of their high school career.
Personally, I think that math is beautiful. We often overlook the wonderful patterns and relationships in mathematics and how they relate to the real world; I hope we can work together soon!
In my free time I enjoy being with my wife and our daughter. We love to travel and go hiking.
