I am very excited to have your child in my class this year and looking forward to a year full of learning and growing. This year, 2017-2018, will be my fourth year teaching and my first year at O'Farrell Middle School. I will be teaching 3 classes of 8th grade Math Core and 1 class of 7th grade Math Intervention.
I grew up and graduated from high school in the Los Angles County area. In 2010, my husband joined the Navy and we moved to the state of Washington. I graduated from Central Washington University with a B.A in Mathematics:Teaching Secondary and taught in WA for three years. I recently had my son (Dagger), took a year off from teaching, and moved here to San Diego. I am very excited to get back into the classroom and start teaching!
My passion is working with young people and teaching mathematics that is relevant and engaging. I enjoy using technology, hands-on lessons, and helping all my students to have a Growth Mindset. Thomas Edison once said "Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time." See you in class!
