Welcome to Ashford School 7th and 8th Grade Math.

My name is Donna Backhaus. I received my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Connecticut as a Math/Stats major.            I have a Masters degree from the University of Saint Joseph in Curriculum and Instruction. I have taught mathematics at              Ashford School for twenty-three years. I am looking forward to an exciting year.
