I have been in education for 8 years and this is my 6th year teaching at East Millbrook. I'm originally from New Jersey, but have lived in Raleigh for 6 years now. I've played soccer competitively for most of my life and I also love music. In my classroom, I love making things competitive while also teaching students how to work as an effective team and problem solve.
I've been teaching for 21 years. This is my 5th year at East Millbrook Magnet Middle School. I'm married and have two children - one 10th grader and one 8th grader. I love music, reading, traveling, learning new things, and spending time with my family. I'm currently learning about DJ-ing and beekeeping.
Growing up, the subject I had to work the hardest in was Math. I had teachers that taught the concepts in math, but not the “why” behind it. The “why” helps students to connect and understand the process allowing them to think deeply and reason through not only math, but even problems presented in life. I became a teacher because I wanted students to love the subject that I struggled to make a real connection with, so it has been my goal to approach Math differently, and teach the “why” behind the skill. I have been teaching for 23 years, and this is my fourth year teaching at East Millbrook Middle School. In addition to teaching, I like to spend time with family, travel, shop, and read a good novel.

6th grade CCR Math Teacher. I have been working in the school system for 6 years, originally from Baltimore, Maryland. This is my first year at East Millbrook Magnet Middle School. I’m a dad of two, a six-year-old daughter and a 3-year-old son so I enjoy spending lots of time with my family. Also, I love to play and watch sports during my free time.” Math may not teach us how to ADD love and SUBTRACT hate, but it gives us hope that every PROBLEM has a SOLUTION.”
6th grade ELA teacher. I’ve worked with many different grades/subjects and 6th grade is by far my favorite. I enjoy incorporating the arts into my lessons and seeing my student’s creativity shine through. My hobbies include volunteering, traveling and spending time with my family.
6th grade Instructional Assistant. I have been teaching for 14 years, and this is my 3rd year teaching at East Millbrook.
