Bio

Without a doubt, my favorite part of teaching is the "Aha! Moment." Nothing makes me happier than when a student is excited by a new understanding of something with which they have been struggling or by new connections between ideas. I constantly modify what I do to meet the needs of my students. By working within my skill set, I can rapidly identify and address my students' needs.

Without a doubt, my favorite part of teaching is the "Aha! Moment." Nothing makes me happier than when a student is excited by a new understanding of something with which they have been struggling or by new connections between ideas. I constantly modify what I do to meet the needs of my students. By working within my skill set, I can rapidly identify and address my students' needs.

When I am not working with students, one of my favorite things to do is to sit on my patio where I enjoy reading a good book and feeding the chickadees. Spending time with family, camping, bird watching, going for long walks, taking photos of wildlife, gardening, and the sport of curling are also some of my very favorite things.

I have over sixteen years experience as a teacher and hold lifetime licenses in Regular Education (MC-EA), Elementary/Middle Level Education (Grades 1-8), English as a Second Language, Bilingual-Bicultural Education, and Spanish (PK – Grade 9).

I love math and truly enjoy the challenge of finding a way to make math meaningful and enjoyable for students. For me, it's not enough that a student memorize the algorithms to pass a certain quiz or exam; it's more important that they understand the "why" of the math and discover the beauty of mathematics. Throughout my career in education, I have taken advantage of every opportunity available for professional math training; these experiences have provided me with a rich background and a full "toolbox" which allow me to meet the needs of students.

I look forward to meeting you (virtually!) and to begin to help you understand and enjoy math.
