Q: How do you like Cabrini so far?

A: “I like it a lot. The campus is very open, meaning that I could walk up to anyone and ask them a question. Everyone is very approachable.”

Q: Why did you choose to teach math?

A: “It was a surprise to me actually. It started out as a summer job, teaching substitute math at an alternative school forcing me to go back to school.”

Q: What is your favorite book?

A: “The Name of the Rose” by Umberto Eco. It’s an Italian mystery novel.”

Q: Do you have a personal mantra?

A: “To try to convince people to explore what they are not used to, this especially applies to math.”

Q: What is your favorite food?

A: “I enjoy mostly Mediterranean and Lebanese food, but I could never turn down a hot and sour Chinese soup. I just love spicy foods.”

Q: What are your plans for the future?

A: “It depends on Cabrini’s needs I would love to continue at Cabrini or at least at the college level.”

Q: Is there anything you would like the students at Cabrini to know about you?

A: “I am really glad to come here and get a great idea about how to teach at the undergraduate level and I also enjoy learning more about Cabrini.”
