I am a graduate of Tulane University where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering, with a minor in math. During my career as a chemical engineer in Texas, Florida, and New York I volunteered as a high school math and science tutor, as well as an adult education teacher through the local communities and found myself dreaming of becoming a teacher. Once I decided to transition to teaching, I also earned my Master of Arts in Education with a concentration on instructional technology. My specialty is math because I have a knack for providing students with real-world scenarios in which to use the math authentically; this comes from my experience as an engineer. To further hone my craft, I am also pursuing a doctorate in organizational leadership with a concentration in school leadership. I believe teaching and learning are the two most important things a person can engage in during their lifetime, and I continually pursue both with a passion. I have recently taken up running and when I am not actively teaching, I also enjoy reading, yoga, sewing, and cooking.
I am a beginning runner (5K races or shorter) with a goal to increase my distance within the next year. I enjoy attending live sporting events, and I also enjoy reading, yoga, sewing, and cooking.
