I received a B.S. in mathematics from Penn State University in 1987 and completed my teaching certification at the University of Pittsburgh in 1990. I taught in the Pittsburgh area prior to moving to State College in 1993. I have been teaching at State High since that time. I teach Strategies for Algebra 1 and Advanced Algebra II.
