My Bio

I am a passionate educator with 23 years’ experience. I have had the privilege of teaching a wide range of students; infants to collaged age and other educators.  My passion is teaching STEM (Engineering); advocating for quality math and science education through hands-on experiences that show how math and science are connected and then adding a dash of engineering into my teaching.  When I am not teaching inside the classroom, you can find me teaching workshops that promote STEM in early childhood classrooms, mentoring and coaching teachers around the state.  I have had the privilege to speak at the March for Science rally for several years in Phoenix and was featured in both a national magazine for STEM education and local newspaper about STEM Education.
