This is my sixth year at Washington Technology Magnet and I am excited to be back and ready for the new year! I teach two sections of geometry and two sections of AVID 10. I graduated from the University of Saint Thomas in Saint Paul with a degree in math education. I have been in the St. Paul Public School district my whole teaching career.
Traveling is one of my passions. Throughout college I studied abroad to Peru and India. Peru was a trip to learn more about applied mathematics in the ancient Incan culture. We visited 7 cities around Peru, my favorite being Arequipa, and many ancient Incan ruins, like Macchu Picchu. Inda was a trip to learn more about the religions and cultures of India. We participated in many festivals, religious ceremonies, and stayed with an Indian family for a week. It was a real enriching experiment and would go back in a heartbeat! Other places I have traveled to have been Mexico, with a few friends. I visited Paris, Rome, and Venice with my sister in the summer of 2011. Morocco was one of my favorite places where I even camped overnight in the desert!
My most recent trip was to Thailand and Myanmar through a fellowship with three other teachers at Washington. While we were there, we learned about the Karen culture and their educational background to help us better teach our students. It was a once in a lifetime learning experience and we hope to help our Karen student succeed in school.
During the summer, I enjoy camping and hiking throughout the United States. My favorite and hardest hike has been at the Grand Canyon. We hiked down the canyon, which took 5 hours and spent three days exploring the canyon and swimming in the waterfalls.
