6th Grade Math

A Little About Me…
Educational Background I began elementary school in Ingalls, Indiana and then moved to Terre Haute prior to Second Grade. Fun Fact is that Ingalls was a small 1-12 school and I didn’t attend Kindergarten but started right in at First Grade!
I received my B.S. degree from Indiana State University and my M.A degree from Ball State University. I also have a Trainer Certification from Ball State University. I am licensed to teach Elementary Education K-6, Math 1-9, and Audio Visual Communications K-12.
Professional History I began my career substitute teaching in the Vigo County School Corporation. Shortly after that I went to work for Indiana Workforce Development and worked in training for many years, teaching job seekers and corporate employees soft skills and computer software programs. I have also been a training consultant, traveling to several projects in the United States, before returning to Education to teach Math at Woodrow Wilson.
Personal Information I live in northern Vigo County with my husband, John, and our dog Bentley. I have 4 children and 1 grandchild.I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, watching football, traveling, and dancing.

Classroom Stories

Friday Papers: One of our weekly assignments is to complete the Friday Paper worksheet and submit it by the end of the week. We have a competition between classes to see which one can have the highest percentage of papers turned in by the end of the school day each Friday. When one of the classes reaches 10 points they receive a class reward. Last school year the 3rd Period Class won the first round and the second round was won by the 2nd Period Class. Both classes chose an ice cream party for their reward!

Remember this: Tell me and I forget, Teach me and I remember, Involve me and I learn!
