TEACHING EXPERIENCE

After teaching 10 years of high school math and 5 years of 7th and 8th grade math, I have returned to the high school level! I am convinced doing education differently is the best plan for learners! :)

MY TEACHING STYLE

My classroom is filled with Kagan structures to actively engage students in their learning.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BSEd in Mathematics from University of Arkansas MEd in Secondary Education from University of Arkansas Teaching Experience: Bentonville High School (10 years) Washington Junior High School (4 years) Kirksey Middle School (1 year) Rogers New Technology High School (currently) I'm hooked on building better students...

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My husband and I have two beautiful daughters. Chuck works for Wal-Mart, and we attend Fellowship Bible Church. It was my honor to be a classroom teacher in the Bentonville School District for 14 years; however, I resigned my teaching position in 2013 to stay home and spoil my family during our California adventure. After loving every second of creating secondary math lessons during my temporary sabbatical, I returned to the middle school classroom in the Rogers School District in Fall 2015. And then a unique opportunity to teach at a PBL high school in our district opened and I jumped at the chance in August 2016!
