About Me

I have been teaching math for going on 7 years in title 1 schools.  If you had told me that I was going to be a math teacher when I was younger or even in college I would have laughed at you.  I am the child of a teacher and I knew what type of hours this job required.  Not I (at least I thought so).  My Jonah and the whale tale led me into a degree in architecture.

Don't get me wrong, I still have a love for architecture as well.  I graduated when the economy was in a slump.  So here I had 4 years of experience under my belt and no one was hiring.  So my mom calls me to tell me there is a math position at my high school back home.  I decide to interview, knowing there was no way they would hire a person whose last math class was Calculus 2 in high school.  Well, they hired me.  And I am so thankful that they did.  Turns out I had a love for teaching, just as much as I had a love for design.  So now I teach students proportions through scaled models and talk about slope using the stringer for stairs.

My husband and I have three beautiful children.  As you can see we do not take life too serious.  I love to tell corny jokes in class.  This lightens up the mood and leaves students coming back time and time again.  I am always thrilled to see my students having success beyond high school and being their cheerleader even after they leave my four walls.

In summary, being a math teacher was the best mistake I ever made.  Thank you for coming to check out my blog, I love to share with others.  My classroom would not be as awesome without the work shared by other great educators.
