About Your Teacher:
My name is Ms. Cruze and I look forward to being a part of your career in the study of mathematics this year! I graduated from the University of Chico State with a Bachelor of Science in Business with an emphasis in Marketing. Since the age of 16 I have worked for bakeries/restaurants, a computer lab, a fashion company, and planned events for the City of Fullerton. With my background in marketing and my life experiences I plan to make this year’s class full of creative activities and relevant life math uses!

About the Course:
Core math concepts are needed in everyday life and I want my students to not only see these connections but practice their math skills with relevant material. We will accomplish this by actively engaging in group activities, projects, and creating word problems. Math is a subject key to succeeding in the 21st century and the jobs of the future require higher thinking and creativity in the math field.
