Degrees and Certifications:
I received a degree in Chemical Engineering from Virginia Tech, and worked in industry as an engineer for 12 years before deciding to do what I had always wanted to do – teach. In 2010, I participated in a government grant program through Drexel University which provided the education and support for engineers and scientists to become math teachers in struggling schools. Through this program I taught two years of high school math in Mobile, AL, and earned my alternative teaching certificate. After that,I began teaching middle school, where I have been ever since, in Mobile, Opelika and Auburn. This will be my 13th year teaching math. It is my third year at East Samford School.
