Welcome parents and students to Math Course 2! This is a very exciting year for Math. Course 2 will begin with Proportional Reasoning and Operations with Rational Numbers.
As an eighth grader, I had a math teacher who didn’t teach very much and I ended up peer tutoring my classmates. I had never had a teacher who was so absent and stepped up to help my peers to learn the work. After graduating college and becoming a nanny, I realized that my favorite part was tutoring in Math so I went back for my Master’s degree to teach.
I am a teacher and a learner. I encourage my students to be honest, caring and responsible for all that they do in and out of class. I support each student and recognize their value. I set the stage for learning by creating a fun environment where my students are all engaged. Learning best takes place where there is motivation without fear of criticism. I encourage students to look beyond the classroom for mathematics in their daily lives.
This is my 8th year at La Cima as Math teacher, ACHIEVE Program Coordinator and Yearbook Adviser. I have been the adviser to Student Council for three years.
Previously, I student taught at Desert Sky and taught the second semester at Old Vail in the Vail School District.
