I've been a high school math teacher since 2011. I've taught Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry and Trig. I've taught at three different high schools in my career.
I graduated from high school in 2008, Mineral Area College in 2009, and Drury University in 2011. Education is obviously a huge part of my life. I've wanted to be a teacher ever since high school. My teachers helped inspire me, and I want to pay it forward by inspiring my students as well. My goal is to change the way kids look at math and use it in their lives.
I share this crazy life with my husband Jon. We've been together since 2012 and were married on June 20, 2015. My husband is a K-12 PE teacher and coach at a rival high school. We have a fur baby named Willie and we treat him like we would our very own child. Total we have 11 niece and nephews, so we are constantly surrounded by children.
I LOVE sports! I'm a basketball coach, so naturally that's my favorite. We are also HUGE baseball fans. I love my Cards all the way! I like to read, watch movies, spend time with my loved ones, travel, decorate my house, PINTEREST!!, and sleep. I spend a lot of time dedicated to my work, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I love incorporating new ideas and activities into my curriculum.
I hope you use this blog as a resource in your classroom as I have done with several blogs I follow. I can't wait to share my ideas with you and hope you use them in your classes as well.
