My teaching and learning philosophy is based on the notion that learning is a lifelong process, and the distinction created between real life and schooling.
Every individual has the capacity to learn, and the realization that learning is a cycle that never ends but only increases in depth of understanding is what I would like students in all areas to discover for themselves. Along with this discovery is the need to appreciate the joy of learning. As a teacher, I would like to foster this joy in a way that bridges learning in school and learning in life.
During my undergraduate career, I studied Mathematics with a minor in Physics and earned a Bachelor of Science. During graduate school, I earned a Master of Arts in Teaching and Grades 6-12 certification in Mathematics and General Science. My research involved mathematics anxiety.
I have experience as a teacher, teaching assistant and tutor.
I enjoy running, and I really like animals, especially dogs. I like reading narratives and educational materials to further my growth.
