Sketchnoting is a relaxing practice that aims to capture ideas in images and text in an engaging way
Sketchnotes combine image and text as a unique visual synthesis. No pre-requisite experience is required.
Teaching and Mentoring
Center student voice through cultural competence, build caring teacher-student relationships as a grounding for academic achievement, and cultivate critical consciousness to transform educational opportunities.
As a teacher my goal is to support students’ rich opportunities to learn meaningful mathematics. I ground my practice in research and theory on learning, teaching, and equity in mathematics education.
Theory and practice go hand in hand. I’m on a quest to engage in critical conversations to strengthen these connections, and take action toward a shared vision for improved mathematics education for all students.

- Cultivating Joy.Cultivating joy means noticing when I’m joyful, and when I’m not. It means accepting what is, and living with an intention to cultivate joy.
