Welcome to 6th grade math.  We will learn about math.  Our big focus will be on being able to show your thinking in multiple ways using a variety of strategies.  Students will learn to love math and overcome their fears and anxiety about math.  They will learn to believe in themselves and bring math alive.  I am so excited to share my love of math with your child.  It's going to be an "app-solutely" amazing year in math!

My husband is a disabled veteran of the United States Marine Corps.  He is currently a Sr. Engineer at Lockheed Martin.  We have six children ages, 24, 23, 20, 17, 13, and 12.  We have also been blessed with a 5 year old grandson who is full of energy.  We moved to Texas from San Diego, California July 2018 and we love Texas.  I love traveling, watching sporting events, hanging out with my family, shopping, driving, and of course my passion "teaching."  I look forward to learning all about you and showing you how to love math.
