Teaching math is my passion. Each day I marvel about the way students learn, think, and grow. I take pride in providing a math experience that fills a small chapter in a child’s life, in the hopes of shaping a repertoire of math skills for their future and beyond.

I have been teaching for ten years in various academic settings. I have found a home here at Mott Hall III for the past 4 years. I teach Common Core Math to two seventh grade classes as well as math skills to three eighth grade math classes. I also have an advisory group, which meets once per week to discuss social issues and various topics of concern. In addition, I guide a Community Service team at MH3 which comprises of about 60 students from grade levels ranging from 6-8.

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications from Buffalo State College. I also have a Master of Science degree in Math Education from the City College of New York.

After hours, I work as an adjunct professor at Hostos Community College. My mission here is to provide a quality education to those students who might have dropped out of school early or immigrant students who are trying to further their education in order to obtain a better job. At Hostos, I prepare adult students for the TASC exam to earn their high school equivalency diploma.
