Located 30 miles off Cape Cod, Massachusetts, I currently work as a high school Mathematics teacher at Nantucket High School, the only high school on Nantucket island. I work enthusiastically to build students’ analytical and deductive skills in mathematics and science. I graduated from American International College in 2011 with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and a minor in International Business. My focus was in Analytical and Applied Organic Chemistry in the environment. Since then, I have worked in food production, laboratory science, veterinary medicine and education. I have a strong repertoire in fostering science education among young students and assisting them to see the role of science in today’s rapidly changing world. I am happy to bring my skill-set and passion for STEM to the virtual judge’s circle of RISE for a third year.
