Teaching Philosophy: “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I may remember. Include me and I will learn.” I believe that the interests of my students are relevant to how they will learn.

Things you enjoy doing on your time off: Supporting my daughter in gymnastics, shopping, and getting my nails done.
