Athletic Director & Math

What’s your teaching philosophy?

I believe in learning through doing — you have to get your hands dirty. The challenge of making connections between things that on the surface may seem unrelated is a fun and effective way of digging to the root of the subject at hand. I want the students to experience and appreciate math as it appears in the world around them.

What excites you about The Academy at Penguin Hall?

The Academy’s instructional teams encourage teachers and students alike to pursue their passions, and work together to create an environment for learning, growth, and exploration. Being a part of a founding faculty is a unique adventure; I am excited that we are all on this voyage together, I am proud of what we have accomplished, and I look forward to what the future holds.

Share something unique about yourself.

I love being outdoors, and once spent a month backpacking and whitewater canoeing in the Yukon Territory.
