I have been a resident of Harrisburg for almost all of my life. I was born in Trenton, New Jersey on McGuire Air Force Base, but moved to Harrisburg at a really young age. I attended dancing school for many years, played in the Harrisburg High School Cougar Band, was a cheerleader and went into the military in the Army National Guard right out of high school.
Upon leaving basic training and army school I moved to Washington State, and worked for a company called National Semiconductor. There I found out that Electrical Engineers designed semiconductors and what all of them had in common was a good ability in math and a strong intuition for how to use electronics.
I decided to attend Pierce Jr. College in Tacoma, WA, then later moved back to Harrisburg, and attended HACC for 8 years part-time and during that time, I was asked to be a part of teaching/tutoring mathematics/chemistry/engineering in the math lab. I have been doing that part-time for 10 years. I graduated from HACC with an ASEE then I attended Penn State Harrisburg to finish my BSEE and worked in the Engineering field for 1 year. After working as a teacher for only 3 years, I have obtained my Level I certification in secondary mathematics, and graduated last year from Eastern University with a Masters in Multicultural Education.
My goal is to teach students through project based learning using the latest technology.
