I have taught for almost 11 years, with Algebra being my favorite subject! I have taught grades 8, 9, and 10, and am currently teaching 9th grade Regular and Pre-AP Algebra 1. I have been on numerous curriculum writing committees covering every level including ESL and RTI. I am involved in many aspects of my school, and I enjoy supporting the AVID program!
I am going into my fifth year of using interactive notebooks with my students and I absolutely love them! Many of my former students have come back telling me that they use them in their upper level math classes. I also make foldable, use cooperative learning strategies and graphic organizers. I use a lot of color and try to get my students to talk and write about math as much as possible. I incorporate technology when it benefits my students, and I encourage them to solve problems using multiple representations.
Nominated for Teacher of the Year multiple times

I live in Texas with my husband and two cats. When I am not creating engaging activities for my students, I am crocheting, gardening, cooking, birding, or binge watching Netflix!
