I have been a math teacher at LEAP since 2004 and have taugth almost all math core classes, e.g. Algebra, Geometry, Algebra II, and basic math. Before joining LEAP, I was with Minneapolis Public Schools for about 14 years.I have had the privilege to work with and learn from many diverse urban learners and educators my entire teaching career.
Besides teaching, I enjoy many outdoor activities like camping, fishing, hinking, and hunting. My family resettled in the Twin Cities since 1979. In 2009, I had the opportunity to visist several Karen Refugee Camps in Thailand. Some other memorable places I've visited include Cape Canaveral Kennedy Space Center, the Washington DC National Mall, and many beautiful national parks, e.g. Yellow Stone, Glacier, Rocky Mountain, and the Grand Canyon.
I feel fortunate to be among the LEAP community of dedicated staff, supportive families, and motivated students.
