Hello,

This will be my 11th year teaching and coaching at Capital High School and my 21st year for my career. I previously spent ten wonderful years in Fort Benton, MT coaching and teaching. I earned my under-graduate degree from The University of Montana Western in Secondary Education mathematics and history. I earned my master’s degree from Concordia University Portland in Education and Curriculum K-14 mathematics in December 2014. I have two independent, loving children and a wonderful husband, Jeff.

I have taught a wide range of classes including, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, College Algebra M121, Statistics 216 and Title one Math. If I could use one word to describe myself it would be PASSIONATE. I love math and I love my job. I love helping students learn a life skill… mathematics. In our society, we have people that either love math or hate it. It is my mission to help every person in my class to walk out on the last day and NOT HATE MATH. My classroom is a positive environment in which every student will work hard and have the ability to succeed. Everyday I wake up I am honored and excited to teach my students mathematics.

Mathematics is 50% ability and 50% confidence. I will do what I can every day to help instill confidence in all my students.
