About Me: I am a homegrown Californian–born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area! I always knew I wanted to be a teacher, so I studied Mathematics with a minor in Education at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Currently, I am in my second year of the Masters and Credential in Science and Mathematics Education (MACSME) program here at the Graduate School of Education, UC Berkeley. When I am not busy student teaching in public math classrooms, or working on my research projects, you can find me practicing dance or Chinese internal martial arts.
Research Interests: My academic goals are to bridge the worlds of research and practice to improve mathematics education. When I begin teaching full time in high school mathematics classrooms, I aim to use my research experience to inform my teaching practices. Currently, I am researching how students conceptualize mathematics, specifically proportion, through an embodied, goal-oriented activity using remote-action technology. In other words, I want to see how students use technology and their bodies to learn math!
