As a native of San Antonio, I grew up spending many weekends on Lackland Air Force Base. After graduating from high school, I moved to Atlanta to pursue a Business Administration degree at Oglethorpe University. I spent several years working on websites and photography before deciding to really make a difference in the lives of young people. At that point, I moved to Washington, DC to pursue my Masters in Education, and then launched my teaching career. Over the last six years, I have worked with elementary students to make their learning relevant, engaging, and meaningful. Having taught 3rd, 4th, 6th, and now 5th grades, I look forward to teaching math as a part of Lackland's dynamic 5th grade team! Math is my PASSION!
