I have been teaching High School Math for over 20 years. I moved home to Juneau in 2012 and have been teaching at Juneau-Douglas High School since 2013. Before moving to Juneau I taught in the South at Title 1 schools with large minority populations. I have had success in my 20 years of teaching because of the relationships, trust, and respect I am able to earn from the students. In 2014 I earned my Masters of Math Education, K – 8, from UAS. In 2017 I was honored to be a BP Teacher of Excellence. I have a passion for education and consider myself a constant learner and advocate for minority students. When not at school I am usually hanging out with my two sons or doing something related to softball.
