After graduating from Michigan State University and obtaining Mathematics Major, Physics and Integrated Science Minors, and Secondary Education Certification. I completed my student teaching at Eisenhower High School in Macomb, MI and my first year at Holland New Tech in Holland, MI. The last two years I’ve taught math at Manor New Technology High School in Manor, TX. I will be part of a founding staff of a new PBL high school in Austin, TX in the fall of 2016. In addition to teaching I coached basketball and was awarded the Knowles Science Teaching Foundation Fellowship in 2014. My passion lies in teaching high school math and science, particularly in a project based learning model. MSU has allowed me to have a wide range of classroom experiences even before my internship year. This has helped me to experience many different teaching situations. As a teacher, I am excited to be able to share my knowledge and positive views of mathematics to students.

I am originally from Rochester, Michigan. I am currently pursuing a graduate degree in teaching and curriculum at Michigan State. I started rowing in college for the MSU Crew Club and have competed at many national races and have some medals to show for it! Rowing was a very demanding sport to balance along with my academic and work schedules. Today I continue to row competitively for Austin Rowing Club’s Competitive Women’s Team.
