Hello and welcome to 8th-grade math! What a crazy few months it has been! Even though things are looking just a bit different this year, I am looking forward to a fun and challenging year and getting to know each of you. Just a little bit about myself - when I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughters, Annemarie and Kirsten. Rie is 4 years old and Kis will be 1 in December. I love to swim and swam on both my high school and college swim teams. My favorite stroke is the backstroke. I received my bachelor's degree in mathematics from Augustana College in Rock Island, IL. After college, I worked in sales for 7 years. I sold commercial park and playground equipment, mostly to schools and park districts. However, I missed working with adolescents. So I went back to school at North Central College in Naperville and got my teaching license. I have enjoyed teaching so much more than being in sales meetings all day!
This is my fifth year here at Brooks - previously, I taught high school Algebra and Geometry. I had fun working with high school students, but I am enjoying preparing 8th-grade students with the skills that they will need to become successful next year in high school. This year I am teaching two blocks of 8th Grade Honors Math (or Algebra I) and one block of regular 8th Grade Math. My planning period is 4th block, which during virtual learning is usually from 1:30 - 2:35. That would be the best time of day to get a hold of me. If your student needs extra help, I am also available from 7:55 - 9:15 in the mornings.
Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
