’09 B.A. in finance, ’12 M.A. in education, mathematical instruction

(Mathematics teacher at the American School of Dubai in Dubai, United Arab Emirates)

"My job at ASD was directly due to being a Tommie. My principal who hired me is also an alumna and calls St. Paul her “home of record.” She pulled my resume out of a stack of 250-plus other candidates because she values the strong education UST is known for. My mathematics and finance courses at UST gave me the numeracy background to pursue a teaching career in the mathematics field. I try to incorporate real-life projects (following the stock market, creating and balancing a budget) that allow middle school students to get a taste of the financial world at their level and how very complex it can be."
