About Me

I am a high school math teacher, curriculum girl, technology geek, blogger, tweeter, wife, and mom.  I love school  and all things education.  As far back as 3rd grade,  I remember playing "math teacher" with the neighborhood kids.  Not much has changed over the years, my passion for students and the desire to unlock the mysteries of mathematics still drives me today. 


I strive to make the classroom engaging, enriching, and inspiring and I seek to create moments that have a positive impact on students' lives. I realize, at times, it is a challenge to bring learning to life, but I believe the effort is always worth it.

I am entering my 13th year at a small school.  (A place where I actually met my husband when we were both in the 8th grade :)  At a school the size of ours, one tends to wear many hats.  Through the years, my experience has included teaching middle school science, teaching high school math, writing grants, and doing curriculum stuff.  I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have two sons, ages 18 and 20, and one chocolate lab, who loves to swim in the swamp waters behind the house.

I can often be found surfing the web at all hours of the day and night looking for new tips and tools that can be utilized in the classroom.  I admit, I am a bit addicted to cool gadgets, blogs, podcasts, and social media.  So, please share great resources when you find them.  I look forward to learning with you!

I am not sharing but more asking. I need advice, suggestions, examples on flipping my Algebra II classroom. Yes I have watched the videos online and they are great but I would like to actually talk to someone first hand.
Thank you
