Hello everyone and welcome to Math 8! Through my class website, you will find my course syllabus and additional resources (links to review games) to help your child succeed this year.Just a little bit about me...I was born and raised in Pennsylvania...and received my education through coursework at Penn State and East Stroudsburg University. I recently completed my Master's in Education, from LaSalle University. When I am not at school, I try to spend as much time as I can with family and friends, and/or engaging in recreational activities. I love to stay active through running, lifting, cycling and hiking. My favorite sports teams include the New York Giants and Penn State! I have one child; he is furry with 4 legs...and I love him more than anything in this world -- his name is Rosco.How am I going to help your child this year???I am extremely passionate about what I teach...and that will be evident in your child's learning. Considering that the majority of children do not enjoy going to math class, I try to make my class as engaging and fun as possible. I also make myself available throughout the day (during and after school hours) to ensure that your child receives the additional help he/she may need.If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at any time. I look forward to working with you and your child this year.
