I graduated from ASU with a degree in Elementary Education with the intention of teaching Kindergarten. Somehow, over the years, that has turned into a career of teaching middle school math! This will be my 12th year of full-time teaching and my 8th year teaching 7th grade math. My favorite part of teaching is helping students tackle difficult problems and learn to be thinkers. Math is all about puzzles, patterns, and problem-solving. What could be more fun?!
