"I take my love of the math and sciences to the students at New Hope. I want the students to see the everyday practical applications of math and science as well as ease their transitions into more complicated topics by giving them the tools and confidence they need. My goal is to make the learning fun as well as comprehensive to keep the student’s passion for learning alive."
