And, we usually spend 3 out of 4 weekends a month at our farm in the 63665 zipcode where we like to hike, ride 4-wheelers, go to the river, spend time with family and just relax...
I love being a math specialist at Glenridge! I get to interact with students in classrooms and in small groups. I get to work with the teachers to plan lessons that meet the needs of the variety of young learners in grades K-5. I try my best to be a support to parents and the whole community as we deliver the best math instruction possible for these striving mathematicians! My passion is teaching and learning math, and I hope that this transfers to everyone I'm around.
Please contact me if you have questions about our math program, or if I can help you in any way!
