About me

29 07 2010

Welcome! Bienvenidos!

My professional webspace contains pages that reflect my past/current educating through the lens of mathematics. I am currently a high school mathematics teacher at the James Baldwin High School. The school is a a transfer public high school in New York City, NY. The September 2017-17 school year finds me teaching Fall: a) Math & NYC Subway b) Playing with Logic; Spring: a) The Beauty in Math b) Math Meets Art I am also an advisory teacher for 15 students, Yearbook advisor, and School website manager. This school has an unique focus on learning deeply versus widely and writing across curriculums. I really enjoy working in this small community of teachers and learners for the past four years.

During 2011-13, I was an international educator in Cali, Colombia, working at Colegio Bolivar as the Geometry and Geometry Honors, 10th grade teacher. It is an American school with bilingual (English/Spanish) students and I taught mathematics in English.

May 2012, I completed my doctorate in Urban Education at The Graduate Center, City University of New York.  My dissertation is titled: “Keeping count of all and losing count of a few: The construction of the high school dropout rate”.

I have held positions as a secondary mathematics classroom teacher, professional developer, and educator of elementary and secondary school mathematics teachers.  My career goal is to improve the link between students and educational resources found among school, parents, and the community in the pursuit of graduating from high school.  All students deserve adult mentors that assist in their quest to continue their educational pipeline.
