Welcome to another fantastic year!
I am very excited to have your student in my class this year and am looking forward to a year full of learning, growth, and development.
I love middle school math because it has such practical applications; we adults use this middle-level math every day! Taxes, tipping, figuring out which peanut butter is the cheapest per ounce! The problem-solving that students learn in middle school math will help them for the rest of their lives, and I feel honored to assist in their learning.
I'm so happy to be teaching 6th grade tech again this year! We use computers EVERY day in our adult lives--for work, play, socializing. It is SUPER important that kids learn how to be safe and wise on technology and to learn the tools they can use for years to come!
I am also excited to teach 7th grade Engineering and Robotics this year, and to coach the Robotics team! What a great opportunity to help students learn their cooperative and problem-solving potentials!
I graduated from Pacific Lutheran University with a BA in Psychology and from Argosy University with an MA in Curriculum and Instruction. My teaching endorsement is in Middle School Mathematics.
I welcome ANY of your questions or concerns and am available almost always by email.

I'd also like to get to know your student through YOUR eyes. If you haven't already written me a letter about your student (In a million words or less), please look through this "care-giver homework assignment" and either email me, or have your student bring a written copy to class. A million or less (less please!) :-)
