This is my 5th year teaching at Glendale and I love seeing my students discover the language of discovered patterns...mathematics. I am constantly amazed at what great thinkers 7th and 8th graders can be. My goal is to have all my students say: "I am persistent. I am logical. I can explain my thinking. I am a problem solver." I am the mother of 6, grandmother to 6 and enjoy life with my high school sweetheart, Michael. In my previous life, I was a chemical engineer at an oil refinery, wrote a hands-on science curriculum for elementary students and coached/taught state championship chess teams.
