This is my education background: Masters in Mathematics for Teaching from Harvard University and a Bachelors in Mathematics and Russian Literature from Wesleyan University
What I do outside Star Academy: You can usually find me getting scratched up and dirty somewhere in the Adirondack or White Mountains. I am an avid rock climber and hiker, and I thoroughly enjoy spending a night camping under the stars with my husband and two kids. You can also find me running/biking on the trail or out in open water, and I am hoping to get more into triathlons in the near future. Don’t worry, I do know how to slow down; you can also find me cuddling up for hours with a good book.
Teaching mantra: I want math to come alive for my students, and for them to see that it’s embedded in everything around them: in nature, music, sports, and, most importantly, in the way they think and reason. I want my students to investigate and discover the properties of mathematics, and to value deep understanding above rote memorization.
