I'm originally from the Houston area where I graduated from a school that is, in almost every way, the opposite of NYOS. After graduating, I earned my bachelor's in mechanical engineering from The University of Texas at Austin, specializing in thermals/fluids. I then worked as a thermal engineer designing cooling solutions for computer servers. Not feeling satisfied with the work, I returned to my alma mater to pursue my teaching certification through the UTeach program which espouses the ideas of student-directed, inquiry-based learning that largely shape my teaching philosophy. As a teacher, I've been sharing my love of math with students in the classroom since January 2016 and at NYOS specifically since January 2018.
I utilize Google Classroom as a class website where you can access things like assignments. Students can ask me for a code to join.
