I have been an educator in Denver Public Schools for the past nine years. During my first four years in DPS, I served as an ELA-E Math and Science teacher at Montbello High School, and during the last five years, I have been supporting our high school math teachers and leaders in my roles as ELA Math and Science Coordinator and then High School Math Curriculum Specialist.

This past year, I had the opportunity to work with our Denver Teacher Residents through teaching the Secondary Math Methods courses at the University of Denver. I am extremely passionate about equity and access for all students in mathematics and just began a two-year term serving on the TODOS: Mathematics for ALL Board of Directors. My favorite part of working in education is being a part of a constant learning community – growing alongside teachers, students, and the community.
