Hello students and parents! I am thrilled to begin my first year as an Argyle Eagle and 16th year in education! I started my career in South Carolina after receiving my B.A. from Furman University in 2003. I earned my M.Ed. in Secondary Mathematics Education from Converse College in 2005. I taught in Florida for a year on my way here to Texas because I just couldn't wait to become a resident of the greatest state in the USA. I have taught math in grades 7-12 including Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, and AP Statistics. Prior to expanding my family, I also taught introductory education courses at NCTC.
I am married to my wonderful husband of 10 years and we have the most amazing 3 year old son who spends his time swimming, playing, learning, and bringing us joy every day. Our hobbies include watching Thomas the Tank Engine, reading stories, singing, and counting everything in sight.
I encourage open communication with students and parents, so please contact me anytime you have questions or concerns. I have very high expectations of all my students and they always rise to meet them. Students often find math in 8th grade to be more challenging than they have ever experienced, which is a good thing. They will work harder than they ever have, become more responsible and take ownership of their learning, and they will find success through perseverance and being proactive. My job is to push, challenge, and encourage students and catch them when they fall so they are prepared for high school with good habits and a solid foundation in mathematics.
