How long have you been a teacher?
I have been teaching at AHHS for 7 years and I taught for 5 years before that at another CPS high school.
What inspires you as a teacher?
The other day one of my students commented, "This class just keeps blowing my mind!" after we discussed flat fish and how their eyes migrate to one side of their head as they mature. That's what I'm going for! I love inspiring curiosity in students. Our students are incredibly resilient and many have endured tough situations that nobody should have to go through. I want them to see beauty and amazement in the world again. And I hope as they feel more connected to the world, they can be inspired to find their path in the world too.
What is one fun fact about yourself?
I love animals and I used to work at a zoo helping to raise baby animals. Some of the most interesting animals I helped raise were a tiger, some servals, and several coatimundis.
