About Me

Educational Background

I am a proud graduate of the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, concentrating in Strategy & Innovation, and minoring in Leadership Studies. At this time I am pursuing my Master of Arts in Teaching Mathematics at Georgia State University. I am working to earn this degree by Spring of 2022.

The combination of these two areas of study will allow me to bring real-world applications of mathematics to my classroom at the historic Frederick Douglass High School. Statistics, Geometry, and Calculus are present in our everyday lives, we just need to learn how to recognize them!

Philosophy of Education

At my core, I believe it is a teacher's job to meet each student where they are emotionally, intellectually, and physically. My main priorities in teaching an often intimidating subject are differentiation and rigor—ensuring that every scholar gets the resources they need to be successful and that every scholar builds the confidence to overcome any academic challenge.

Over the next school year, I strive to honor the struggle we've endured over the last few months. Transitioning to a new school routine will be difficult, and we won't know what works best for everyone right away. To my students and their families, I promise to navigate this transition with you with patiencecompassion, and with open lines of communication. My inbox and phone number are always available.

Fun Facts

I grew up in Orlando, Florida, just a few miles down the street from Disney World. For almost a decade, I've performed in a variety of choral groups, from academic to semi-professional. I am a proud older sister, and I've wanted to be a math teacher since I was 8 years old.
