I have been teaching for many years, the last 17 at Metz Middle School. I am certified in all core subjects at the middle school level. Currently, I am teaching Math 8 and Algebra 1. I have a B.A. Education from Converse College in Spartanburg, SC and a M.S. Ed in Computers in Education from Shenandoah University in Winchester, VA. Additionally, I have completed extensive coursework in Curriculum and Instruction from VPI and in Secondary Math Instruction.
I hope to have students learn the many ways that math can provide insight into solutions for many of life's problems, big and small; and to realize the myriad of careers that are available with a good mathematical foundation
Outside of school, I have two daughters and one grandson and one granddaughter. I am the President and Show Chair of Shawnee Kennel Club and on the board of the Irish Setter Club of America. I write for several publications and have been nominated as Dog Writer of the Year.
