I have been teaching Middle School Science for Minneapolis Public Schools since 2006 within schools in North and South Minneapolis. I have also worked as a Youth and Family Programs teacher at the Science Museum of Minnesota.
I completed my Bachelor of Science degree in Education and Middle School Science with a Minor in Music at St. Cloud State University. I also studied Pan-Africa and South African History, Culture, and Music at the University of Port Elizabeth (now Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University) in Port Elzabeth, South Africa.
Outside of school, I enjoy urban cycling, music, reading, the ride cymbal, spending time with my spouse and our cat, exploring, and just generally staying busy.
