Fun Facts

Best advice you ever received?

There’s no such thing as perfect. Do what you can, then look for ways to improve. And there are always ways to improve.

What did you want to be when you were growing up?


What do you enjoy most about teaching?

Taking information and framing it in a way that students see how it applies to their everyday life.

A piece of advice for students in your school?

Learning should be challenging but not frustrating or impossible. Spend 15 minutes on a task; if you still don’t understand or haven’t found a way to make things work, ask for help.
