Hello and Welcome to Seventh Grade!
This is my seventh year here at DCMS and I am thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful school and district. Not only am I a teacher in the district, but I also have 2 boys that are "Antlers". Corey is a Sophomore at DCHS and Nolan is an eighth grader at DCMS. My husband Dan and I have been married for 18 years. We met while living in Miami, Florida, but decided to move to Oklahoma (where I was raised) in order to raise our family -- a very happy decision for us. As a family, we enjoy attending the boys' sports and scouting events, going to OSU ball games, traveling to see friends and relatives, or simply gathering in the living room to watch a family movie.
I completed my undergraduate degree in Finance at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma in 1986 (Go Pokes!). After spending some time in the business world, I attained my Masters in Education at Florida International University in Miami, Florida in 1995. From my graduation date until my first year of teaching, I continued to stay involoved in education through substituting, tutoring, textbook writing, and Pre-School teaching. I am certified in Elementary Education as well as Secondary Mathematics.
I truely enjoy teaching math to kids. To see the look in their eyes that tells me that they "get it" is just like the commercial says..."priceless". I would love for all of my students to like math, even as much as I do, but more importantly, I want my students to be comfortable and successful in working with math.
Classroom Mission: To promote an atmosphere where all students feel secure about their individuality. To encourage my students to treat one another with respect and realize that we are more alike than we are different from one another.
Mathematics Mission: To promote a positive attitude toward math within my students in order that they can feel comfortable and successful when dealing with mathematics. To assist my students in realizing that they CAN do math.
