This year I teach 6th grade magnet math and science. I am partnered with Ms. Snyder who teaches ELA and Social Studies.
I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree from The University of North Carolina Wilmington. I have my Master's Degree in Teaching Science and Mathematics from the College of Charleston. I continue to take classes and workshops to keep my teaching up to date! You never stop learning! I am looking forward to spending this exciting year with your child. The key to a successful year is a strong communication between the teacher, parents, and students. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.

Many of my students are very nervous about math. It isn't really that they don't know how to do problems, but mostly that they don't know where to start.
Doing math is like eating an elephant -it is only possible one bite at a time. Break big problems into smaller parts. The small parts are usually easier than trying to find an answer in one step.
