Welcome to Foundations of Algebra and Pre-Algebra! I am pleased to have you with me for my ninth year teaching Math at Harmony Middle School. I am a JMU graduate where I earned my degree in Psychology and Middle Education. I began teaching in Fairfax County in 1999 where I taught 4th and 6th grades for several years before having my 4 children. After a long break from full time teaching, I eagerly returned to the classroom in 2016, and I am looking forward to another fabulous year at Harmony! I recently got married this past January. I gained two wonderful step-children, an amazing husband, and a new name to get used to!
As for Math, I want you to know a few things... YES YOU CAN!!! You absolutely can "do Math", and this year we will further broaden your mind, stabilize your Math foundation, and build your confidence. YOU ARE A VALUABLE RESOURCE to our class whether you understand or are confused, so you will be expected to contribute and share no matter what! We all can and will learn from each other, me included!! Be prepared to question, look at things in new and different ways, and to appreciate the art of making mistakes and growing from them. These are the ingredients to Math success! I can't wait to learn, problem-solve, and grow with you!
I post my assignments in daily folders found in my Schoology classes. Please check there frequently. Students can find access to their courses through the Schoology app in LCPSGo. There is a link to Schoology in Phoenix for parents to access Schoology as well.
Phoenix is the official grade book for all Loudoun County Public Schools. My grade book will be updated no less than weekly.
