About Me

I am a math teacher at Lift for Life Academy in St. Louis, MO. I previously taught for several years in DC Public Schools. I have enjoyed watching the young mathematicians grow over the course of the year. In my classroom I often use a blended learning curriculum in order to differentiate instruction and encourage independent learning in our scholars. I am always pushing myself to think of new ways to help the scholars understand the why behind the math.

I graduated in 2017 from the University of Chicago with degrees in statistics and economics. As a result, I am particularly interested in how statistical and economic thinking intersects with the world of education.

I was raised in Aurora, Colorado, and I am sure to visit the beautiful state whenever I can. I also enjoy hiking, playing video games, and reading copious amounts of Wikipedia.
