  I am a graduate of The University of Houston with a Bachelor of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (Education).  I have been teaching high school 16 years, and I am proud to begin my 2nd year at Lake Creek High School and Montgomery ISD.  This year, I will teach Algebra and AQR.  Previously, I have taught 7th and 8th grade Math, Algebra 1, Geometry, Math Models, Algebraic Reasoning, AQR, and Algebra 2.  My husband and I have been married for five years, and our grandsons are three and four! 

 

Supplies

Required:

Notebook:  Composition or Spiral, lined paper or graph paper

Graph paper (if not in notebook)

Pencils (regular and map)

2 Dry Erase Markers (2 different colors)

Optional:

Highlighters, Markers, Erasable Pens, Straight Edge (6 in ruler), Erasers

Please be prepared for class each and every day!!!

In my classes, we focus on processes and concepts that students will be able to use for future mathematics.  I am looking forward to getting to know my students as we become Lake Creek Lions!

  5. Re-test must be taken within 4 calendar school days after tests are returned (even if student is absent as grades can be checked on-line) regardless of absence.

  6. Re-tests must be taken at a prearranged time with teacher. If student missed the pre-arranged time, then opportunity for re-testing is forfeited.
