 Grade 7 Math

I am so excited to be teaching math this year at CPMA! This is my ninth year in SDUSD, and my first year here at CPMA. I have a B.A. in Music Education from Point Loma Nazarene University and a Masters of Education in Educational Leadership from Brandman University. I hold teaching credentials in Foundational Level Mathematics and Music. I have lived in San Diego since I was fifteen, and graduated from Torrey Pines High School in Del Mar. As a military kid, I had the opportunity to live all over the country growing up, but San Diego is my favorite place to be.

Music and math are my two passions. I have played the violin since I was three, and I am always working on learning piano. I love looking at math as a subject that can be very creative, and I look forward to helping my students grow in their abilities and master math this year.

When I am not busy being a mathematician or musician, I love reading, cooking, spending time with family and friends, and playing with my dog Lucy.
