My teaching philosophy: I decided to become a math teacher because I wanted to prove to students that everyone can do math! I try everyday to instill confidence in the students I teach. I strive to take the fear out of math, and help students to have a more positive outlook about math.
My hobbies: Spending time with my family, watching movies, running, watching my kids play baseball, being outside with my two kids and our bull mastiff dog
