Tell us about yourself!

I started teaching tennis to in the inner city to kids in the 90s then I major in engineering, electrical engineering. I volunteer at several public schools. After finishing my degree I major in mathematics. When I was in school (college) the Lord called me into teaching so I decided to teach mathematics then I get a masters in computer technology I’ve been teaching for 16 years now in the department of Ed. and coach tennis 20 years. I also love teaching and love to see my students learn as I explain a concept, that bring me joy. I’m involved in my church as a Sunday school teacher and I also coach tennis with the New York Junior Tennis League.
