About Me

I’m a math teacher at Homestead High School in Cupertino, California and a Knowles Teaching Fellow in the 2018 Cohort. I currently teach Pre-Calculus Honors and Algebra 2. I attended Northwestern University to get my Bachelors of Science in Education and Social Policy with a concentration in Secondary Math Teaching and a double major in French. I got an Illinois credential for both math and French for middle and high school from Northwestern and have since transferred it to a California credential.

In the past I have worked with Breakthrough Silicon Valley when I was first getting interested in teaching, and I have studied abroad and worked an internship in Belgium with the Projet Rubens and the Lycée Français International Anvers.

In my free time, I enjoy reading books (both fiction and non fiction). I tend to have no preference in fiction, but I tend to go for a lot of historical non fiction. I enjoy cooking, which has always been my secret passion. I also dabble in writing fiction from time to time. I am currently working (read: have been going back and forth on this for the last two years) on a novel I wrote for a Nanowrimo challenge many years back, that I hope to eventually finish editing.
