About Me:

Since the age of 5, I have wanted to be a teacher. I spent the first year of college trying to deny that fact by taking art classes and majoring in graphic design. By the end of my second year, I knew that math was my calling and that teaching was where I should have been headed all along!

            
In August 2004, I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Master of Arts in Math. I also hold a Bachelor of Science in Math from the University of Houston at Clear Lake and an Associate in Science in Math from Alvin Community College. I earned my Texas Educator Certificate as a Secondary Mathematics Teacher in 1997 and as a Principal in 2017.

 

I have 23 years teaching experience and have had the pleasure of teaching in Montgomery ISD for the last 14 years - for the last year at Lake Creek High School and 13 years prior at Montgomery High School. I previously taught in Conroe ISD at Oak Ridge HS, in Klein ISD at both Klein Collins HS and at Doerre Intermediate, and in Sheldon ISD at CE King HS. 

 

My husband also works for Montgomery ISD as the Assistant Systems Administrator for Safety and Security. We have two daughters - one who attends Lake Creek and is a member of the Royals Dance Team, and one who is a Montgomery HS graduate and the loudest and proudest member of the Fightin' Texas Aggie Class of 2022 (even though she will graduate in 2021).

    In Geometry, students build on the foundations from K-8 and Algebra I.

    Students will explore concepts covering coordinate and transformational geometry; logical argument and constructions; proof and congruence, similarity, proof, and trigonometry; two- and three- dimensional figures; circles; and probability. In the logical arguments and congruence strand, students are expected to create formal constructions using a straight edge and compass. Though this course is primarily Euclidean geometry, students should complete the course with an understanding that non-Euclidean geometries exist. Within the course, students will begin to focus on more precise terminology and symbolic representations, and the development of proofs. Throughout the standards, to "prove" means a formal proof to be shown in a paragraph, flow chart, or two-column formats. Students will strengthen their mathematical reasoning skills in geometric contexts.

    Curriculum in this advanced course is modified through depth, complexity, and pacing as compared to the curriculum in the similar level course.

    The TEKS for Geometry can be found on the TEA website at http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/rules/tac/chapter111/ch111c.html#111.41.
