About Me

  • I am a public school educator currently teaching math, and computer science to middle schools students at a charter school in Kent, WA. Previously, I taught at the high school level in Federal Way, WA. I'm constantly working to create, adapt, discuss, and explore different ways to help students discover all the amazing concepts and ideas found in STEM fields.

  • I am a teaching fellow with the Knowles Science Teaching Foundation (KSTF). The foundation supports a small cohort of early career teachers through five years of teaching in an effort to increase retention of STEM educators. The fellowship has given me the chance to grow and learn with an incredible group of teachers.

  • I am a graduate of The Ohio State University where I studied Electrical & Computer Engineering. I did research in RADAR image processing as a graduate student under Lee Potter, PhD. My research experience has heavily influenced both projects and units that I've designed and taught at the high school level.

  • I am an alumnus of Teach For America - Washington (TFA). Teach for America helped provide a pathway for me into education from engineering, partnering with the University of Washington's Accelerated Certification for Teachers (U-ACT) program. The support I received from these organizations was essential towards helping me develop a passion for teaching.

  • I am an advisory group member and former instructor at the Summer Program in Mathematical Problem Solving (SPMPS) in New York State. With SPMPS, I developed and taught two week-long courses on topics in electrical engineering and computer programming to a group of pretty awesome rising 8th graders.
