Welcome to another fantastic year. I am very excited to have your child in my class this year and am looking forward to a year full of learning and growth. This year we are working around a mountain climbing theme. During the first full week of school I asked students to identify what their "Life's Summit" will be and then list 3 goals that will help them reach their summit. Please feel free to talk with students about their response and visit our classroom bulletin board to see what students wrote!
This is my 5th year teaching Math; my 3rd year at Heatherwood. My educational background includes a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a Master's degree in Middle level Mathematics. Before launching my teaching career, I enjoyed 15 years of studying music and teaching piano, along with raising my four amazing children. I have always enjoyed mathematics and have thoroughly enjoyed helping students gain confidence in their ability to understand mathematical concepts. My goal is to help every student find success in meeting the Washington State Common Core learning standards in Mathematics. I believe that as students and I work together in a positive and productive learning environment we can achieve this goal. Please see my class syllabus for our class structure, as well as grading and assessment policies. Please feel free to contact me at any time via my District e-mail or phone. I look forward to an amazing year of helping students develop skills that will contribute to a happy and successful life!
