Welcome to a new school year! It is hard to believe that I am beginning my 15th year at Central Middle School and my 23rd year of teaching. I received my Bachelor’s degree from National-Louis University, my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction as well as my Type 75 endorsement from Olivet Nazarene University. I am delighted to have the privilege to teach math to your child this year. I hope to provide activities and strategies for your child so that even the ones who think that they are bad at math can believe in themselves, enjoy, and be successful in math. My goal is to connect what your child is learning to real-world situations therefore making math real to them.
