My Education and Professional Background

This will be my 7th year teaching and my first for Chandler Unified School District. I have taught in Montgomery County in Maryland, Mesa High, and BASIS. My undergraduate degree is in Sociology from UCLA. I have an MBA in finance from Howard University and an MAT in Secondary Mathematics from Johns Hopkins University. Teaching was a change in careers for me but I know it was what I was always meant to do. I love teaching math and making it fun for my students. I remember how boring math class was for me when I was in school, and it motivates me to keep trying new ways to make the subject more fun and engaging for my students.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that student success begins with the teacher and requires a partnership with parents. Math can be challenging at times and it is one of the few subjects that requires lots of practice for understanding and mastery. I also believe that students need to believe in their own ability and not become discouraged when they make a mistake. Making mistakes in math is a part of the learning process and is essential to learning anything new concept. I do my best to provide a fun and safe learning environment where students feel encouraged to participate in the lesson and don't worry about giving a wrong answer.
