8th Grade Mathematics

Background

I have been in education since 2003 where I began my journey as a teacher right here in St. Louis Public Schools. I have a Bachelor's degree from The University of Texas at Austin (GO LONGHORNS). Later, I persued a Master's degree in special education from UMSL and finished in 2006.  I am a bit of a wanderer and my free spirit led me to teach for about eight years out of the country (4yrs South Korea/ 4yrs United Arab Emirates).  However, my heart brought me back to my hometown and back to SLPS.  I began as a Special Education teacher, but math has always been my passion.  I decided two years ago to change my focus from SPED to math and I absolutely love it!

When I'm not at Busch with my wonderful students, I spend time with my super cute French Bulldog Gizmo.  I am also continuing my education as I am currently enrolled at UMSL finishing up my first year in an Education Specialst program for education administration.
