Hello My Name Is...
I teach 8th grade Math/Algebra I on the Main Connection team at Lingle Middle School. I am also very excited to be coaching dance this year.
A few things about myself: I am from Tulsa, Oklahoma. I swam for Jenks High School, where we took State all four years. I swam for Saint Louis University my first year of college. My sophomore year, I moved to Spain (Studied in Madrid for 6 months, Málaga for 3 months, and interned at a vet clinic in Barcelona for about 5 months). I continued to follow my love for travel and, by train, I visited 28 countries in Europe and Asia. I also studied Middle Eastern Studies at the American University in Cairo, Egypt. I graduated from Oklahoma State University with a B.A. in Spanish, and a minor in Mathematics. I earned a Master’s degree in Education from the University of Arkansas. This is my fourth year teaching. My first I taught at an international school in Shenyang, China. My second and third year teaching was spent at McNair Middle School in Fayetteville. Along with my love for travel/languages, and my proud, nerdy passion for math, I also love sports and often compete in triathlons.
I am very excited for a stellar year at Lingle Middle School! Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions and/or concerns. Thank you parents for all your support!
