Welcome to Algebra 1/Geometry! I love math and am excited to teach you this year! I have enjoyed math all my life. I grew up attending Manchester Local Schools, then graduated from Kent State University with my degree in math education with a minor in music/piano. I completed my Masters in Gifted Education this past spring. During the summer of 2015 and 2016, I taught 4-6th grade math in downtown Chicago (see picture above where my husband visited for a weekend). For my first year of teaching, I taught at Akron Public Schools-North High School, which had a wide range of cultures and ethnicities. This is my fifth year at JMMS and I love being here! I teach 8th grade Algebra 1 and Geometry. My goal is to challenge my students to do their best and learn as much as they can with deep understanding, but also to have fun while learning math.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband Paul, our 2-1/2 year old son, Peter, and our dog Penny; playing the piano, backpacking, and running. We also have our 2nd child on the way, due January 9th of 2022!
Thank you for reading about me! I hope to learn more about you throughout the school year!
