Let me introduce myself - I graduated from Walsh University and have been teaching Math for six years now. This will be my fourth year at Northwest Middle School teaching 8th Grade Math and Algebra I. Throughout my time at Northwest, I coached Varsity and JV Boys Golf at the high school (for three years) and Girls on the Run: Heart & Sole at the middle school (for two years)! I am now working very hard to earn my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction: Talent Development Education from Ashland University. I am so excited to continue my teaching journey here, share my love of Math, and get to know each one of you! Most of my time has been spent doing what I love the most - teaching - but I also enjoy reading, cooking, traveling, fishing, running/biking, golfing, and spending time with my family, friends, and new puppy.
I look forward to a fun and successful year with you! As your teacher, my goal this year will be to help you understand mathematics fully and apply it in the real world. Therefore, it should be your goal to be a motivated and hardworking student. I know you can be a successful Math student this year if you put forth your best possible effort!
This webpage will grow to become a major resource for you in our Math and Algebra classrooms. It will include additional Math resources that we use daily (interactive notes, Spiral Reviews, practice worksheets, collaborative projects, study guides, etc.), classroom announcements, homework/assignments/assessment dates, and helpful learning links, tools, and videos. You will also see additional resouce pages to the left with information and links for our ConnectED Online Textbook, Google Classroom, Khan Academy Mappers, and Study Island. Please check my webpage regularly, along with our Gradebook System "eSchoolPLUS" (SunGard) and Assignment Messaging System "Remind," for these classroom updates!
