Other Information

Before I began my teaching career, I practiced law in Santa Fe and Washington, D.C. for 25 years. After completing American University's graduate teaching certificate program, I began teaching at the Melvin J. Berman Hebrew Academy, followed most recently by nine years in the Upper School of the Kingsbury Day School, where I worked with students with learning disabilities. I have taught Algebra, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Logic, and even a Mock Trial class, and have tutored students in a variety of math courses as well as SAT prep. I enjoy reading, knitting, and origami. During the season, I am an avid Washington Nationals fan.
