Welcome to my class page! You can learn more about me here.

Regardless of grade level, Mathematics in my classroom is heavily focused on a strong understanding of the problem-solving process. Students are encouraged to explain and detail each step of how to solve a problem in order to teach them that many components of the process are used in solving other problems as well. English Language Arts is strongly focused on writing and grammar usage, including the ability to cite evidence and explain the students’ thoughts. Religion primarily focuses on what it means to be a member of God’s community and how we can live as followers of Jesus.

As a teacher, I focus on assuring students that they should not be intimidated by math. The topic can at times be complex and even frustrating, but students are frequently reminded that they should feel free to ask for help with any part of any problem. I do my best to make myself available to students through Google Classrooms and extra math sessions in the morning before class, ensuring that students have a variety of ways to contact or approach me regarding any issues.
