Classes: I teach math and instruct the drumline.

1. What got you into teaching? I was influenced by my math teacher that I had in summer school between 7th and 8th grade. She really showed me that I had a gift for math and helping others in the subject. 
2. How long have you been teaching at Riverside Prep? What brought you here? This is my third year at Riverside Prep. As for what brought me here, they were the one's who offered me a job!
3. What do you like about teaching at Riverside Prep? My math department and the students. My department is a great group to work with and I enjoy spending time with them. I enjoy my students, especially my drumline students.

4. What's your favorite moment in teaching? I love the moment when it just clicks for a student and they understand what we are doing. It is a great moment, especially in math where many students struggle.

5. What does it mean to be the High School Teacher of the Month? It is a big surprise! It helps to validate the long hours that I have spent here at the school, especially during drumline season when I am here until 6 p.m. almost every day and I still have to keep up with my math classes! I never expected to be Teacher of the Month as I don't do this for the recognition, but I try to do what's best for my students.
