    Carrie Ballou,

    I was born in Santa Clara, California and moved to Seattle, Washington when I was 8. I moved to Phoenix in June 2015. I went to the University of Washington where I earned my BS in Mathematics with a minor in Chemistry. After graduating, I attended Seattle Pacific University where I earned my Master in Teaching Math & Science. While earning my masters, I completed a full year of student teaching at Skyline High School in Sammamish, WA where I taught Algebra 1-2 and Pre-Calculus. For three years, I worked at The Bear Creek School in Redmond, WA where I taught AP Statistics, Geometry, and Algebra 3-4. I have worked at Sandra Day O'Connor High School teaching Geometry & AP Stats for the past three years. And yes, I'm a Seahawks fan.
