8th Grade Algebra

  • 8th Grade
Welcome! This is my seventh year teaching math (I taught for three years at the high school level and this will be my fourth year with middle school). It's always been a priority to me to be able to pray with the students I teach, and I feel blessed to teach in a place where I can help to develop all aspects of a child. My husband, Josh, and I love to travel and got to spend some time this summer on Lake Superior, both in Michigan and Minnesota. We visited Mackinac Island, pictured rocks and the Boundary Waters. We love to fish and hike and enjoy God's creation. We are so blessed to have a daughter who will be turning one at the end of October. We love to spend time with her and watch her grow! I'm excited to learn and grow with my students, and I'm looking forward to the 2019 - 2020 school year!
