7th Grade Math
I was born and raised in Goleta, California, right outside Santa Barbara. I attended Seattle Pacific University where I double-majored and earned my Bachelor of Arts in Accounting and Business Administration Management - Human Resources. I received my teaching credential from Teaching Excellence, a program created by YES Prep Public Schools in Houston, TX.
After graduating, I worked at a Public Accounting firm in Seattle in their audit department. After some soul searching, I decided to follow my passion for education and moved to Houston, Texas to become part of the YES Prep Team where I taught Math 8 and Algebra I for four years. After another horrid humid summer, I decided to head home to California and continue to teach on the West Coast.
This is my eleventh year teaching and sixth year at New West. I am excited to continue to assist in creating mathematical thinkers in Math 7 (Algebra/Pre-Algebra) this year. When I’m not in the classroom, I enjoy movies, reading, cooking, and traveling.
