Did you know studies show that preschoolers are only spending 6% of their school day learning math? That accounts for only 2 minutes of their entire day! With my position, I’m able to expand on our programming to bring innovative math practice to preschoolers. Before working at ServeMinnesota, I served as an AmeriCorps VISTA member in Minneapolis Public Schools. My favorite service moment has to be when my VISTA cohort distributed food, clothing and water to support the community after a tornado hit North Minneapolis in May 2011.
Outside of work, I enjoy playing trombone in an 80-person band. We perform all over the Twin Cities area!
