I started my teaching career as a gymnastic coach. When I had my own children I opened a preschool. I then went back to school to finish in math and education. I have been teaching middle school math since 2001. For growth and research opportunities I joined Math for America as a master teacher through UC Berkeley in 2012. Last year I taught math/science education courses for CalTeach at UCB as well as continuing my own research and experimentation with Fab-Lab, Maker Education, and future ready curriculum. I am also involved with the Fab Lab movement happening in Denmark.
