I decided I wanted to be a teacher when I was 8 years old. I was inspired by my 3rd grade teacher's way of making every student feel valuable and successful. I have been teaching 8th grade math for 15 years, 13 of those at Hal Peterson Middle School. I have been married 21 years and have 4 children. I am bold in my Christianity and active in my church. I love coffee and corny jokes!
"Children don't hate math. What they hate is being confused, intimidated, and embarrassed by math. With understanding comes passion, and with passion comes growth - a treasure is unlocked." Larry Martinek
My goal is to unlock the treasure of understanding, passion, and growth in every student.
