Hello everyone. This begins my 6th year teaching mathematics at Southland. I've also tutored in math and science, and I am the faculty sponsor of the Anime Club. I studied Applied Mathematics and Aerospace Engineering at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, and after graduation I continued coursework at Governors State University in University Park to receive certification in mathematics education. In the summer of 2015, I encouraged an exploration of science through my work with guests at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago.

Ever since my childhood, I have enjoyed science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and space technologies. It is my hope that I can share my excitement for these fields to inspire a new generation of scientists. I look forward to a great year.

And just for fun... Live from space!
