I received my BS in Elementary Education with a concentration in mathematics from DePaul University in 2009. In 2014, I graduated with my MA in Educational Leadership from Central Connecticut State University. I also obtained my Sixth Year Degree in Administration and Supervision from Sacred Heart University in 2016. I have a certification in middle school mathematics, as well as my type 092 in administration and supervision. In addition, I have a Connecticut coaching certification. I am also a certified flipped teacher, as well as a flipped classroom trainer. I received my first position at a school in 2009 teaching 6th – 8th grade mathematics in Chicago. My experiences include teaching middle school mathematics in Catholic, charter, and public schools. I have taught in Illinois, and am currently teaching in Connecticut. Other than teaching, I enjoy helping out in other aspects as well such as after school programs, and developing curriculum and instruction. My ultimate goal is to become an administrator. I was nominated for Teacher of the Year in 2012 and 2018. I was also named as one of the top 100 educators worldwide leading the flipped classroom. I presented on the flipped classroom at the ATOMIC Math Conference in Connecticut, and will be presenting at the RIMTA in December of 2018. In the fall, I will beginning a new position as the mathematics interventionist/specialist/coach at my current school, and plan to implement the in-class flip to help my students improve in understanding.
