A Little Bit About Me:
Hello! I am so excited to teach not only Algebra this year but Science as well. I grew up in Ventura, California and attended UC San Diego for my undergrad. Science and math have always been my love. Being a dual citizen with Switzerland, I have always had a passion for traveling. I have been to 35 of the 50 U.S. states and over a dozen countries.
When I'm not busy working, I enjoy hanging out with my four kids. My oldest son, Soren, will be a senior this year at Ponderosa and I'm already trying to prepare myself that this time next year he will be off to college. We are a big sports household- I love college basketball, NFL football, and watching soccer. I grew up running track and cross-country and still try to squeeze in runs as much as possible. My son Soren plays competitive soccer, my daughter Meta plays rugby, my step-son Cole plays water polo, and my step-son Carson runs track. In addition to my four human children I also have three fur children- we have two dogs, Bernie and Tuesday, and a sassy cat named Daisy.
I grew up playing the piano but am now wanting to learn to play the violin. I feel it's always good to keep your mind fresh and learn something new! To unwind, I love to cook. Following recipes are not my thing; I enjoy the more creative side of cooking. Who knows, maybe I'll make something for the class sometime!
I am really looking forward to getting to know you this year too.
