I have been teaching high school math for 17 years. This is my 9th year with St. Paul Public Schools and my first at Como Senor High. I am very excited to be joining the Como Sr. Staff and look forward to getting to know the students and becoming a member of the community. It is a homecoming of a sort for me, as I was a student teacher here while in college completing my teaching licensure. I graduated from Hamline University with a B.A. in Mathematics, and continued my education by earning an M.Ed from St. Mary's University. I believe that learning is a lifelong endeavor as I continue to enroll in graduate classes to help further my skills as an educator.
In my classroom, I not only focus on the learning of the math skills students will need to continue their education and in life, but also on the building of community among myself, my students and other staff that is so important to student readiness and their ability to learn.
