My Education andTeaching Background:

I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. After teaching 7th grade math for one year in Cleveland, I taught grade 7 math through AP Calculus for 9 additional years in Bartlett.  I left the classroom in May of 2002 to stay home with my son although I did stay in education by writing for Teacher Created Materials.

This year marks my fifth year at Benold and I could not be more excited.  I am ready to challenge each and every one of my students to learn not only the specific material expected but to develop the curiosity and thinking skills necessary of mathematicians.

I am here because I believe that each individual deserves to have the amazing world of mathematics, problem solving, and critical thinking opened. 
I keep the website that you are currently in updated on a regular basis.  I encourage you to check this resource daily.
