I hold a Master of Arts in Education with a specialization in Mathematics Education and a Single Subject credential in Mathematics. I have been involved in education for over 10 years, with extensive experience in curriculum development, STEM programming, and Common Core alignment. I have served on multiple committees at the district and state level, addressing STEM education, the Next Generation Science Standards, and the Common Core State Standards. I have presented both regionally and nationally on topics ranging from engineering in the elementary, integrating the arts in the STEM curriculum, and project-based learning. I have served on the Board of Directors for the Greater Los Angeles Mathematics Council for six years, and am currently serving as the Vice President.
“Every child deserves a champion — an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.” — Rita Pierson
All children deserve someone who will believe in them, support them, and coach them to be their best.
