Welcome Message: I believe mistakes are a necessary part of the learning process. When you make a mistake, try again. You may need to make a few mistakes before you succeed and that’s okay. It’s not how fast you get something, but more importantly that you get it.
I have been teaching fifth grade math for 17 years. I earned my BS degree and Masters in Elementary Education at ESU. I enjoy spending my spare time with my daughter Mackenzie.
I also love to ski, cross-stitch, and craft.
Some of my favorite quotes about math are:
“Good mathematics is not about how many answers you know...it’s how you behave when you don’t know.” - unknown
“It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.” - Albert Einstein
“The only way to learn mathematics is to do mathematics.” - Paul Halmos
Activities: I am the assistant drama director for the drama musical.
