Bio

I am a certified math teacher at Watchung Hills Regional High School, but for the past 4 years, I've been teaching only computer science. I grew up in Staten Island, NY. I have lived in NJ for 12 years. I earned both my B.S. in Mathematics and my M.S. in Secondary Education from Hofstra University in Long Island, NY. Because my current students are computer science students, I find it rewarding when they make connections from our classroom to the real world. The topic is so useful in every field – no matter what our students major in when they get to college, computer science will play a role in their problem solving, their use of technology and their ability to think creatively. I hope to continue to inspire more females to take computer science!
