I am in my first year of graduate school at UGA. I am in the PhD program for Math Education. Before I came to Athens, I was living in Atlanta and working at Woodward Academy. During my years at Woodward, I taught Geometry, Algebra, Precalculus, Calculus, and Statistics. Besides my teaching duties, I also coached the varsity ultimate frisbee team who placed second at the state championships in 2003 and 2004.
My main hobby is playing ultimate frisbee. I have been a member of the women's team, Ozone, based in Atlanta, since 1999. During this time, the team participated in the WFDF Club Championships in 1999 and 2002. In the 2002 tournament, the team placed 2nd! This truly was a memorable experience.
While this team is considered "elite" because we travel for tournaments and participate in the Ultimate Players Association (UPA) Championship series, I am also involved in the local organization for ultimate called the Atlanta Flying Disc Club (AFDC) where I am the junior coordinator. This job has me trying to promote high school ultimate, get more kids involved in the sport, and trying to get a high school league started in Atlanta. My work with youth ultimate does not stop there. I am also the UPA's Georgia Youth Coordinator and am a Level II coaching instructor. My duties here involved organizing the state championship, helping new programs in the area, and helping to create and eventually teach competitive coaching for high school and college teams.
Besides all the ultimate, I enjoy my four dogs and fiance who are still in Atlanta. My fiance also plays ultimate, but when we are not playing we travel as much as possible.
Hopefully, I will have more math ed accomplishments to add to this page in the future. Have fun checking out the links!
