7th Grade Math
I have been teaching at Kihei Charter School since 2010. This year I will be the 7th grade math and 6th grade engineering teacher as well as the Kindergarten - 8th grade lead teacher.
I earned a bachelor's degree in pure mathematics from Montana Tech of the University of Montana and a minor in liberal studies. I am certified in PLTW (Project Lead the Way) engineering in Design and Modeling, Automation and Robotics and Energy and the Environment.
During my time with KCS, I have spent much time engaging students with hands-on activities, project-based learning and outdoor field studies. Students learn better when they are challenged to work on tasks on their own with a teacher as their coach. I strongly support developing student skills to be successful in a 21st century environment.
I am married and have two sons and one daughter (all three are KCS students). In my free time, I enjoy hiking, camping, snorkeling, gardening, and cooking. I also enjoy working on math problems and crossword puzzles.
I am always excited to meet new students and families as well as reacquaint with those returning. Please feel free to contact me anytime for questions, comments or concerns.
