Although I didn't know it at the time, my passion for education began when I was twelve years old and I ‘convinced’ the neighborhood students to attend tutoring with me. Later in college, I studied to become an engineer, and I earned a BS in Computer Science, Engineering, and Mathematics with a minor in Physics. I fell into teaching almost on a dare. Eighteen years later, I haven’t looked back since, and I continued my education, earning two more Master's Degrees in Mathematics Education and Educational Administration.
My teaching career has taken me all over the country, from teaching math in Philadelphia to becoming a mathematics instructional specialist and then an administrator in Austin. Although I have enjoyed teaching college and high school students, I am excited to grow with the Arcadia High School Community and SUSD!
