Welcome to 8th grade! This is my 29th year teaching math and this year I'll be teaching Math 8 and Math II. I've lived in Rockingham County all of my life, except the years I was in college at NCSU (GO PACK!), and I've taught in Rockingham Couty as well as Guilford County. My sister is a middle school English/Language Arts teacher and my daughter teaches 8th grade math at NWMS. We're proud proponents of public schools.
I totally believe in the growth mindset and the power of YET! In class we focus on learning from mistakes, sharing our learning strategies, and productive struggle. I love watching kids celebrate finding their own mistakes and developing strategies to improve their learning based on mistakes.
