7th Grade Math
I was born and raised in Goleta, CA 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. I finally decided to head home to California and continue to teach on the West Coast.
This is my eighth year teaching and third year at New West. I am excited to continue to assist in creating mathematical thinkers in Algebra and Pre-Algebra this year. When I’m not in the classroom I enjoy traveling, reading, cooking, and hiking.
