Degrees and Certifications:
Hello Ravens! I am thrilled to be teaching Math 6, Honors Math 6, and Academic Connections at Rice this year. I love watching my students grow and become confident mathematicians throughout their time in my classroom.
I grew up in Plano, and I actually went to Rice during my middle school years! I have a Bachelor's Degree and a Master's Degree from TCU (Go Frogs!). I taught 5th grade math and science for 3 years in Mobile, Alabama before coming back home to Texas. This is my 4th year teaching and my first in Plano ISD, but I'm no stranger to Rice!
My passions include making mathematics engaging, collaborative, and rich with discussion, creating a safe classroom community through open-minded communication, and actively engaging with the community to promote social justice within the public school system. My classroom culture focuses on exploration and I believe this allows students to embrace the art of trying new things, even if mistakes are made along the way! Outside the classroom, I love playing with my dog, Eddie, watching college football with my husband, and exercising. I am very excited for a wonderful year of learning and growing together!
