6th Grade‎ > ‎

Mrs. Hunter (6th Math)

Welcome to my page for 6th Grade Math!
A bit about me:  This is my fifth year teaching at Merrill Middle School and my 14th year in education. I have taught all levels of math at Merrill, I enjoy teaching students how to think, explain, apply, and compare / contrast in math. I am from Connecticut originally, and am certainly an East Coaster at heart. I have been to Space Camp three times. I am also a "Disney Nerd" - student materials are delivered via Disney popcorn buckets! I also enjoy taking "run vacations" when I train for a 1/2 marathon and run through a Disney park.  I have two amazing but crazy dogs at home, Sophie and Rufio, and an equally fun husband Eric.
