In my free time, I love spending time with my family and friends. I love animals; especially my two kitties, Stitch and Leeloo. I am into most sports. I love playing volleyball, baseball/softball, tennis, ultimate frisbee, and basketball. I love hiking/biking and being outdoors in nature, but I also enjoy reading and watching movies. I love to sing and I wish I could play the guitar better (I’m working on it).
My desire is to help students increase their intellectual and emotional self-esteem by providing excellent mathematics instruction within a positive and nurturing environment. I believe all students can learn math giving the right amount of time and helping them find their path to success.
