Welcome to Honors Algebra 1 for 8th graders, Accelerated Algebra for 7th graders, and Algebra 1 for 7th Graders.  My name is Jan Destefano and this is my fourth year at FHC.   Prior to joining the FHC family, I was a math teacher and the Math Department Chair at Loyola Academy.  I have had many years of teaching experience, ranging from Pre-Algebra to Pre-Calculus, and everything in between.  Math can be difficult for some students, but I enjoy making mathematics enjoyable for all students.  What I hope to accomplish this year is to help my students think critically while learning mathematics and along this journey...enjoy the process.  I am looking forward to great year.
