About me

I am very excited to announce my return to SchoolNova as a math teacher. It may surprise you that I wasn't always interested in math. As a child, I did not have passion for a certain subject. I had passion for all of them, in retrospect, I loved learning. One day you would see me reading Feyman's Lectures of Physics and Plutarch's Lives on another day. Over time, I fell in love with Mathematics. It is a language which is used to describe the world around us. Mathematics is beautiful and defines beauty. I started teaching at SchoolNova when my kids started their first classes there many years ago. This experience made me realize my true passion: teaching. There is nothing that makes me happier than when a mathematical concept clicks inside a students head or when I get to witness them slowly fall in love with mathematics, as did I. That is why, after my experience at SchoolNova, I decided to turn my BBA in Finance and Mathematics from Baruch College into a teaching license and completed a program at Queens College to become a certified teacher. For the past ten years I have been sharing my passion for math with my students at a NYC middle school. Eventually, I got my MS in Mathematics from Queens College as well. I love the opportunity to be able to impact a students life for the better. I am looking forward to teaching at SchoolNova and introducing children to the fascinating world through mathematics.
