Brief Bio:

As an educator, I have great passion for lifelong learning and a determination to ensure that my students perform to the best of their ability. To engage and to involve greater participation in my lessons, I incorporate various teaching strategies such as collaborative work, projects and presentations. I believe students learn best when learning experiences are hands-on, experiential and meaningful to them. As a Supplemental Math Teacher at HFS, I want to see my students enjoy learning Math in a meaningful way, make connections to the real world and be able to communicate their thinking processes in a creative way.

During my free time, I enjoy exploring new places of interest, traveling and hiking with my husband and daughter. In addition, I enjoy quilting, beading and doing Folk Art.
