I am new to St. Helens this year, but this is my tenth year teaching. So far, I have loved living here and look forward to raising my son in this town. I have been teaching Math and AVID, and am excited that this year I get to focus on teaching 7th grade math utilizing AVID strategies. I graduated from Western Oregon University with a Bachelor's in Teaching then from Portland State University with a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction.
My goal for my math classes is that students learn to become deep thinkers about the world around them, which involves SO MUCH MATH. I will support them in building the skills for being lifelong learners and developing strategies for tackling problems.
