Who is Mrs. Stoica?

Who am I

My name is Andreea Stoica and I will be your teacher this semester.

Every day I will post our lesson, maybe even a video of what we learn in class. Every week I will be posting assignments, updates, important announcements, so you might want to bookmark the site. I believe in making your experience in the classroom one that you will remember, have fun while we are all learning and present the content in a way that is easy to understand, is linked to the real world and makes sense to you, as a learner.

I am a biking enthusiast, a wannabe Master Chef competitor, a Hamilton, the musical singer, only in the privacy of my car, an avid gardener, a wife, a mother of 2 boys and 1 girl, a daughter. I am an educator, a math enthusiast, a business professional.

What I do for a living

I am the mathematics and business program area leader at Abbey Park High School; I have over a decade of experience as a business professional and financial consultant. While i miss the thrill of meeting new companies and learning about different technologies, I absolutely LOVE my new career.

Why I love what I do…

Teaching keeps me close to the future of society – students are our future and I enjoy every minute in the classroom. Venture Capital helped me stay in touch with what is going on in the market, understand current business trends.

The best advice I was ever given…

The best leaders know to be great followers and know how to listen (Pat DiPietro). I was fortunate to work with some great minds and forward thinking men and leaders: Chris, John and Pat I owe many of my good moments to you three. I will pay it forward to my students and my kids.

What should you strive towards...

Put yourselves in uncomfortable situations, because this is how you are going to learn and grow. If it feels hard, it means you are learning.
