Degrees and Certifications:
I am so excited to begin my 2nd year here at Woodlands as a math and special education teacher. This year I am teaching Algebra I, Geometry (Regents and Non-Regents), Consumer Math, and Global History 9. I understand that math is a subject that intimidates many students. I love taking concepts that seem complicated and breaking them down so that students can understand them. I teach students strategies and patterns that can help assuage their fears related to numbers. My students will learn that the process of learning can be not only fun, but also relevant and meaningful to their everyday lives.
This year I founded the Gender and Sexuality Alliance (GSA) club which provides a safe place for students to meet, support each other, and talk about issues related to sexual orientation and gender identity and expression.
I grew up in Maryland (Go Orioles!), studied American studies and film at Carleton College in Minnesota (Go Twins!), and while I have lived in New York for 14 years, I will never, ever be a Yankees fan.
