About Me


Teach like a champion


I graduated from Catholic University in Washington, D.C. with a BA in Biochemistry and a minor in German. I have studied in Germany at the Katholische Universitaet - Eichstaett, and I have interned in the Biology department at Ruhr-Universitaet Bochum. I did a fulbright English teaching gig in Vienna so now my German accent is just really weird. I'm now living in Phoenix and teaching math and debate at a high school. I love it!
