I am a middle school math teacher and an advisor on Team Summit. My first job working with kids was as a camp counselor in the Adirondacks. After graduating from UVM with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science I realized working with kids was my passion. I started as a paraeducator at a middle school in Burlington, then directed the after school program for several years. I completed my teaching certification through Champlain College and am certified to teach math and science. I am currently enrolled in the VMI Masters Program for Mathematics Teaching and Leadership. This will be my 11th year working in a middle school and my 4th year teaching. In addition to teaching, I spend a lot of time in my garden and canoeing or kayaking on Lake Champlain. My husband and I recently had a son and we live in South Burlington.
