6th Grade Mathematics 

Room 448

This is my third year teaching here at Mount Elden Middle School! I received my Bachelor's degree at Northern Arizona University and completed my student teaching here at MEMS.  Throughout my education, I also spent time in classrooms at De Miguel Elementary and Sinagua Middle School. In my class, students learn through a mixture of inquiry-based learning and problem-based learning through our curriculum, Desmos. I look forward to meeting my new students and families this year!

I believe that math can be approachable and fun for all. It is my job to guide all of my students to not only master the content but also enjoy themselves in the process. 

For my class students will need their school-issued iPad, writing tools, and a notebook if they chose. 

Covid-19 Online Updates: 

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, I understand that students may miss school. If your student misses class please have them check their Canvas account regularly for updates and learning materials. 

Thank you for checking out my webpage, and please stay safe and healthy! 

Math may not teach us how to add love or subtract hate, but it gives us hope that every problem has a solution.
