B.A. Mathematics M.A. Organizational Leadership
Hello and thanks for visiting my webpage. I am very happy to be living and working in the Wellpinit community. I grew up in Springdale Washington and graduated from Mary Walker High School so this area and community are truly home for me. My college years were spent in Spokane where I attended Spokane Falls Community College to earn my AA. After Community College I transferred to Gonzaga University (GO ZAGS!!) where I earned a BA in Mathematics and certification for Secondary Education. After a few years teaching mathematics for Everett Public School, Spokane Public Schools, and Insight School of Washington, I returned to Gonzaga to complete a Master's Degree in Organizational Leadership. I have a great passion for teaching math and helping young people achieve their personal goals in life. Beyond the academic realm, I am also very interested in music and have spent many years playing guitar. I have traveled to both the Philippines and Mexico where I owned and operated several small businesses. In Mexico, I owned and operated a small grocery store for three years and in the Philippines I helped a family open a chain of Espresso carts. I speak Spanish fluently and I love to learn about cultures that are different from my own. I hope to bring all that I have learned over the course of my professional and personal life into the classroom to enrich our students' learning as they engage in a rigorous math program that will prepare them for college and beyond. Please contact me any time you have questions or even just to touch base and give me your current contact information so that I can keep you posted about your student's progress.
