Hello! I am a math teacher at Central High School in St. Paul, MN, and have taught there since 2003. Most recently, my teaching load has consisted of AP Statistics, AP Calculus, and Algebra 1, but I also have taught Geometry, Algebra 2, IB Standard Level Math, and Basic Standards Math. I enjoy working with all types of learners! Regarding my own education... I received a B.S. in Math from the University of Minnesota in 2003, and a M.Ed. in Math Education also from the U of M in 2008. In 2010, I completed a certificate in Urban Teaching from Hamline University.
I currently teach Pre calculus and Algebra 1 at Seneca high school in Tabernacle, NJ. I have been flipping these classes for almost a year and using Sophia since the start of this current school year.
I graduated from Colorado State University with a B.S in Chemistry and Mathematics along with an education certification. My career began in Utah teaching junior high math and high school chemistry. I spent 22 years in the classroom as a science teacher in the Rosemount, Apple Valley, Eagan School District. I have taught physics, AP, honors, general and concept level Chemistry. Currently, I am a Professional Development Specialist working in the School of Education at Capella University. During the summer, I facilitate week long workshops for new and experienced chemistry teachers at Hamline University with Prof. Matt Morgan. As a team, we cover content as well as current best practices in the science classroom including inquiry and digital resources. I am also employed by the College Board as an AP Chemistry Consultant where I facilitate day-long to week-long workshops for classroom teachers. I believe one of the best ways to improve my professional practice is to network with teachers from all over the country and I enjoy the opportunities this provides.
