BIO: Hello!! I am so excited to be a teacher at Vikan Middle. Math is absolutely my passion!! For those of you who dread math, I hope to inspire you and help make sense of it. By the end of this year, I hope you love math and believe in yourself. For those of you who love math, I hope to challenge you and also inspire you build onto your knowledge. About me!! Besides math as a passion, I'm extremely passionate about the outdoors. I love hiking, biking, and sports. I played soccer since I was six, and played during college and in Europe. I also like to quilt, draw, and paint in my free time. Spending time with my friends and family is also very important to me.
I am beyond excited for this year to get started and get to know each one of you!!
BIRTHDAY: September 20th
INSPIRATION: Within the Math field, it inspires me to see young students, especially young women, breaking the mold and stereotypes about learning math. Dorothy Johnson Vaughan was a great influence, as she was a female mathematician at NACA (later NASA) during 1940's.
