Tell us about yourself!

I teach mostly 8th Grade Science. I’ve been teaching for 34 years: 17 years in my home country and 17 years in New York City. It’s always my passion to become a teacher to impart knowledge, motivate, and engage my students to be interested in science.

Who is your favorite NHL® player and why?

Adam Fox, he is one of the league’s top defensemen

What is your favorite part of the Future Goals™program? How do you see STEM in the game of hockey?

I like how the program make the students use and apply the concept and skills they learned in science into the hockey game. It’s like Science in the real world.

If you played hockey, what position would you play and why?

I’ll say forward since defense seemed to be the one that is always gets targeted
