Barbara holds a B.A. in Mathematics from UC Berkeley and loves sharing math and science with students. She believes that everyone can learn and understand math, as we are all inherently curious about the world and how it works. In her classes she brings a knowledge of computers, programming, and managerial skills from her previous job in tech as an analyst. She also employs a variety of strategies for teaching math, including games, cross-curricular projects, and history. Outside of teaching, Barbara enjoys coding, swimming, mountain biking, running, and creative outlets like photography and music.
