Grade 3-5 Math Intervention Teacher
I've been teaching at the American Indian Magnet since 1997. Up until this year (2021-2022) I was a classroom teacher in fifth and then in fourth grade for all but my first year, when I taught sixth, kindergarten, and second grade. It's great to be back in the building after a year and a half teaching virtually. It's a pleasure seeing AIMS students and staff in person again.
As an Air Force brat, I have lived all over the United States as well as overseas in Turkey and the United Kingdom. I have lived in Saint Paul since October 1992. I love working with students and watching them when the light bulb of understanding goes on. I hope to help students realize that they are capable of learning difficult things like math if they work hard and believe in themselves. I'm looking forward to supporting students in this new way and watching them grow in confidence and independence as they become life-long learners.
