What got you into teaching? "I had several great teachers and coaches while I was a student here at PV (Class of 1994) so I knew this was what I wanted to do and where I wanted to be."

What is one of your favorite moments in teaching? "Seeing the excitement and feeling of accomplishment on a student’s face when he reached his goal on his college placement math exam after working so hard all year."

What has been the biggest challenge in the wake of COVID-19? "Trying to find a way to help all of the students that are struggling, both at home and at school."

How have you made adjustments/what are you doing differently as a result? "Frequent emails to check in on students at home, Google meets to work with students one-on-one, and reaching out to coaches, admin and counselors when I need more support."
