Welcome to my class! I am so excited to begin this new school year and to meet each of you. I am married, have a 1 year old daughter, and two precious Yorkies, Teddy and Scooby. Teaching math is very special to me, because in middle school math was not always easy for me. I had a teacher who challenged me to always do my best. She was arguably the hardest teacher I ever had, but she inspired me. Math became my favorite subject. I write this to encourage you! I did not always like math, but now I LOVE math and recognize its importance in the world around me! I hope that I can inspire you to be the best that you can be in my classroom and in the world outside of my classroom.
