As I enter my 18th year as a math teacher, I can honestly say that each day in the classroom brings a new challenge. Whether it be teaching math concepts to the students, or connecting with each student and building trust, I always look forward to cultivating, guiding, mentoring, and most importantly having fun with my students - even through this remote learning format. I have been fortunate to have had an impact in and out of the classroom and look forward to making many more. In addition to teaching mathematics, I also serve as the Mathematics Department Chair and Learning Team Facilitator.
I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio and moved to Minnesota 1999 with aspirations of playing Division 1 football. Fortunately, I made the team and played at the University of Minnesota for one season, as a walk-on athlete. After two years at the U of M, I transferred to a Concordia University, Saint Paul to finish up my undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Education in 2004. In 2011, I successfully completed my M.A.Ed at Hamline University. By the end of this year, I will have completed my graduate mathematics certification through St. Mary's University/Minnesota State Moorhead.
In my free time, I work part-time as an adjunct math professor at my alma mater, Concordia University, Saint Paul.
