About the Teacher
While a student at Bradley University, I was involved in multiple levels of education ranging from preschool and 2nd grade all the way to 6th grade! After earning my Bachelor's in 2002, I moved to the Chicago area and taught 7th grade Math for 3 years; I also coached soccer and volleyball at the middle school. After returning to my hometown of Peoria, I completed my Master's Degree in Educational Technology through Lesley University. In addition to teaching standard math and accelerated math at MJHS, I have also had the privilege of coaching Cross Country, Volleyball, and Track.
Mission for the Class
My ultimate goal in the classroom is to reinforce the seventh grade curriculum to increase student understanding and ability in the area of mathematics. We explore a variety of concepts including the number system, data analysis, proportional relationships, and geometry. Emphasis is placed on improving organization and management skills, cooperating with peers, and utilizing available resources. I hope to provide a positive, supportive, and comfortable environment so that all students have the opportunity to be successful.
