Know Your Pelicans

If you had an inspirational fridge magnet, what would it say, and why?

Packer colleagues are dedicated to ensuring students receive high quality instruction. Packer students are talented, inquisitive, and ambitious!

If you had an inspirational fridge magnet, what would it say, and why?

"No one is bad at math!" I am a true believer that every student can learn math because students are natural problem solvers.

What is something that most Packer people wouldn't know about you?

Most Packer people don' know that I was born in Germany and although I did not live there, I believe it sparked my love for travel. I have traveled to over 20 countries!

What are the strengths of the Math Department?

The math department is made up of true content experts! They care deeply about ensuring Packer students leave class excited about math but also understanding the how and why behind formulas, rules, and procedures.

What about your work is important to you?

I want to ensure that every student has access to a rigorous math curriculum where they engage in inquiry, problem solving, and critiquing the reasoning of others.
