What is your favorite aspect of East Village High School?

My favorite aspect of East Village High School is the great relationships between the students and teachers. I truly appreciate all of my colleagues, and I love that everyone pushes each other to grow in their talents and skills.

Math is awesome, but what do you enjoy doing when you’re not at East Village High School?

I really enjoy singing in the community choir, reading and writing poetry, and cooking vegan cuisine. I’m also a member of a women’s writing and art community, and I have been for almost 30 years.
