About Me

Hi there!

Since this is my first blog post ever, I’m not exactly sure if I am doing this right. So, bear with me…

As of right now, I am a Student Teacher in Southern California, attending UC Irvine to get my Credential and Masters in the Art of Teaching. I will be graduating in June, and starting my first job this August!

I was born and raised in SoCal, but went to college for my BS in Business Finance at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo. After a few years of working in sales and finance, I wasn’t getting what I wanted out of life, so I decided to change things up a bit. That led me to applying to UC Irvine for the MAT program, which I am almost finished with. Time flies!

I’ve always loved math and found that it came easy to me, so I can think of no better way to give back than to show others how NOT scary math can be! There is still a lot to learn, but I have high hopes for the future, and look forward to developing as an educator.

This blog will serve as a way for me to share my ideas and experiences with others, while also tracking my development in my first year of teaching and beyond.

Here’s to many more blog posts and amazing experiences to come!
