About the Teacher
Degrees and Certifications:
Masters Degree in Secondary Education 6th - 12th Grade Mathematics from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
Let me tell you a little about myself. I have a Masters Degree in Secondary Education Mathematics.
I have also been married for over 20 years and am the mother of two boys. As a mother and an educator I have found that answering the question "WHY?" is very important for learning.
I plan to use my student's natural curiosity of "WHY" to increase their mathematical knowledge by showing students how math is important to them in their everyday life.
Our class motto will be: Learning why is just as important as learning how.
I have just transferred from Moody Jr. High where I taught 7th Grade General Math, 7th Grade Advanced Math, and 8th Grade General Math for the last five years. Prior to Moody Jr. High, I taught Algebra I, Algebra II, Algebra II with Trig, Geometry, Advanced Geometry and Precalculus. I am very excited to be home at Springville Middle School where I can teach students the foundational skills they will need to succeed. This year I will be teaching 7th Grade Math. I am looking forward to a great year at SMS.
