I am a One-Year Temporary Math Instructor. I got my Bachelor in Electrical Engineering at University of Washington and my Master in Mathematics at Washington State University.

When I was a part-timer, I worked for North Seattle College, South Seattle College, Highline College and of course, Green River College.
What drew you to apply to Green River?
I have been working as a part-time instructor for Green River College for 9 years. I love the environment around the school. Sometimes, I would walk on the trail in the forest. However, I love the most is the atmosphere of the Math department. When I come to work, I don’t feel like I go to a working place. I feel like I am coming back home. Everyone is like a family.
