Hello and Welcome!
This will be my 4th year at Normal Park, and teaching is my passion, especially teaching Algebra! Students who excel in Honors Algebra 1 this year will begin high school with 1 math credit, and those who take 8th grade math will be fully prepared to be successful when they take Algebra 1 as a 9th grader. Previously, I taught Algebra at the high school level, so I make it a point to prepare students for an overall easy transition into high school. In my classes, we work very hard while having fun at the same time!
All about me...
I graduated from UTC with a Bachelors in Business Marketing (not the career for me), and then went back and got my Masters in Education. I consider myself to be a patient, accepting, overly organized, supportive, yet strict math teacher who can relate to all of my students on some level. I enjoy a learning environment where we can get things done and have silly moments along the way.
My husband, Allan, and I have lived in North Chatt for over 10 years. I enjoy seeing my students' faces every day in the community! We have two sons, Arthur (4 years) and Charlie (2 years), and then one baby daughter Josie (8 months). Arthur will be at Normal Park Lower as a Pre-K student this year, so I will be a Normal Park teacher and parent! My family loves to explore outdoors, watch movies, laugh, and spend as much time together as we can!
