I am a 7th/8th grade math and Algebra 1 teacher. I graduated summa cum laude from Meredith College in 1995 as a NC Teaching Fellow with degrees in History and Math. I have taught high school math and history as well, and I achieved National Board Certification in 2010. As an educator, I challenge my students and provide the support they need to be successful. I love to create activities, such as labs and experiments, that are tailored to my students' learning styles and show them the importance of math and technology in their lives. Most importantly, I enjoy building relationships with colleagues and students, inspiring students to learn how to think for themselves, and growing responsible leaders as a result!
