My academic background is in engineering. As a female engineer, I was in the fourth graduating class that admitted women at Johns Hopkins University. However, the desire to pass on my love of math and science, and the ability to solve problems, prompted me to pursue a teaching career.
Working for the past three years as a full time teacher, I have been able to pass on my love for the principles of engineering and problem-solving in a private school environment. I have taught high school math, from PreAlgebra up to and including AP Calculus, as well as science, including Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
I love the educational environment and interacting with the students. There is nothing I like more than showing students that math and science aren't the "boogie man" they believe they are and encouraging them to pursue STEM careers.
In my personal life, I have been happily married for over 30 years and have two grown and successful children. I love sports, particularly tennis, football and volleyball. I also jog everyday and live reading and watching mysteries, gardening and cooking.
