Teacher Bio: I am a fourth-year member of The School of Arts and Enterprise Family.  I bring a strong business background and a love for teaching.  I would like to inspire students to become lifelong learners who not only seek higher education but strive to achieve their dreams in spite of personal challenges. The motivation to break through socioeconomic barriers, set high expectations, and persevere has always been my family.  I have three beautiful children and a wonderful extended family.  Recently, we explored the Grand Canyon and walked the Red Carpet with my twins.  Reading is my favorite past time, especially thrillers and mysteries.  I look forward to incorporating all our strengths into building math skills and knowledge.

 

My goal: To engage each student in the learning process, because everyone has the capacity for learning.
