This will be my 20th year teaching and I’m so happy to be here at Mt Abe in our wonderful math department. I became a teacher because I just love math and science and hope to inspire students to share my enthusiasm. Before I started teaching, I was a chemical engineer, so I know how important math and science are in the world outside of school and in our students’ futures. When I’m not busy with schoolwork, I enjoy spending time with my family, especially outdoors. I feel very lucky to have my three daughters and their families nearby so we can share bike rides, canoe trips, hikes, and camping weekends.
