I am pursuing my interest in teaching at the secondary level. In mathematics education, my main areas of interests within mathematics pedagogy include teaching statistics through simulations and technology and teaching metacognition in problem solving. In German, my studies concentrated primarily on communities of heritage German speakers and other communities of speakers of heritage Germanic languages in the United States. 

In my free time, I study Dutch, enjoy cooking, and being outdoors.
