I am Penny - a third grade teacher in Washington State, a mom to three teenagers (Yikes!) and a wife to a very clever man. My heart lies in teaching math to 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. I believe passionately that an excellent math education will open many doors for my students in the future. I have been teaching for 10 years and in 2008 earned my National Board Certification. Although, on occasion, I work with adults on committees at the state level, my heart lies in the elementary classroom with my students.
