I am a Program Manager at Microsoft with a passion for education. I majored in Computer Science and Mathematics at New York University, and played basketball for NYU. Alongside my day job, I coached high school basketball and team-taught AP Computer Science in local high schools to stay involved with youth development and learning. I am interested in the ways in which technology can change and improve our education system and teaching/learning methods.
I am a high school mathematics teacher in Southern California who absolutely loves to make math meaningful and memorable to my students. I currently teach Algebra 1 to 9th and 10th graders, and Math Analysis Honors to 11th and 12th graders. I teach using a "Flipped Classroom" model, where my students receive instruction at home via video and then come to class ready to discuss, think and work together, and solve problems. Outside of teaching, I enjoy relaxing with my husband, reading fiction, going on walks, and watching our favorite shows on Hulu.
I am currently in my 6th year at Fields Store Elementary in Waller, Texas. For the past four years I have taught 5th grade math and I have loved every minute of it! I am a big fan of finding new and innovative ways to bring technology into the classroom and have started Flipping my math classroom this year!!
