A lifetime math enthusiast, I earned a bachelor’s degree in Engineering Science with a concentration in Applied Mathematics at the University of Michigan and an MS in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics from Northwestern University. I even published a paper called “Oscillatory Flow and Mass Transport in a Flexible-Walled Tube”.
After working in the auto industry designing air bag sensors for a while, I moved to Southern California with my husband, retiring from full-time employment to be a mom to my three awesome boys (all Rhoades alumni!). After years of volunteering as a parent at The Rhoades School in various capacities, I was invited to join the faculty as a middle school math teacher. I take great pride and pleasure in teaching math to the terrific students at Rhoades. Currently I teach Pre Algebra, Algebra1, and Geometry. I also have the pleasure of leading the middle school Math Club.
