This is my 15th year teaching. I began teaching 10th grade in Pasco County, Florida. When I moved back to Michigan I moved to 8th grade and now I am teaching Algebra 1 to 9th graders. I absolutely love it!
I love to have my students busy and engaged. Hands on, inquiry, problem based are all great. I try my best to balance application with fluency. I believe that is the key to successful math education.
I am so excited to announce that I am nominated for Michigan Teacher of the year for 2013-2014. I will let you know how it goes!
I am a Michigan State Spartan! Had the best teachers in my math courses there, and although I thought about engineering for a while, Dr.. Hill influenced me to become a math teacher. :)
I love teaching and have been at it my whole life. While I have only been in the classroom for 15 years, I can remember being a young girl teaching the neighborhood kids, my stuffed animals, and even my dog, Almond, if she would sit long enough. I currently teach 120 ninth graders, my six children, and sometimes my husband.
