EducationI double majored in 'Physics Teaching' and in 'Spanish' from Brigham Young University in 2006. I have completed some graduate coursework in the history of science and technology and have a strong background in mathematics and English, both grammar and composition, and have some experience teaching English as a second language.
ExperienceI taught Physics I, Conceptual Physics, and Honors Physics for four years in Falls Church High School in Virginia. I have had experience working one-on-one with students both in the classroom and as a private tutor in my home. I have worked with English language learners from Afghanistan, Latin America, and Poland.
HobbiesI am American and my husband is working on a history PhD about the Hapsburg Empire. We have three children, and have been enjoying traveling around Europe, learning Polish and visiting castles while he completes research for his dissertation.
I am sociable and outgoing, enjoy meeting new people, and teach primarily through real-life examples and experiences. I believe education means little if it does not change the way you see and experience the world. I expect my students to make connections between the material we are covering, their other classes, and their lives.
