When I first went to college in NY, I thought I was going to be a lawyer. Accumulating degrees in Creative Writing, Philosophy, Political Science, and History, I quickly discovered a problem, I did not actually want to become a lawyer. After several years of soul searching and an assortment of jobs, I reassessed my goals. Over those years I kept encountering people who said that they hated or could not do math. After many years i decided it was time to try to do something about that. i went back to school to get my Master's in Math Education from Indiana University I have now been teaching for nearly 6 years in a wide variety of schools. After relocating across the country I found myself here at Hillview Jr. high where I teach 4 sections of 7th grade math 1 section of 7th grade advanced math, and 1 section of 6th grade math. This is my second year at Hillview and my goals for the year are to do my best to ensure that my students do not grow up with a fear of math.
