Welcome to Thornton High School!
This is my 12th year teaching and my fourth year at Thornton High School.
Teaching is my second career. I worked in computers and IT for over 20 years before becoming a teacher.
I am looking forward to this year and guiding my students through math. I understand that many students are struggle with math, but all students can achieve math to a high level. Learning math is about doing the work, making mistakes, persevering and asking questions. Students will be learning in a cooperative setting and will be learning with students in their class team. I am committed to your success.
I am teaching Math 2 (periods 2, 3, and 4), and Discrete Mathematics (periods 6 and 7). I am available to help students during my office hours (shown below). Please be sure and login to Schoology for more details. I am always available via email.
Office Hours: Wednesday Academic Support: 7:45 - 8:20
Monday and Thursday after school 3:30 - 4:30
Stop by for extra help in math or as a safe and quiet place to work on any class.
On a personal level, I have been married for over 30 years and have 5 children. My youngest child is a senior in high school, so I know what high school is like for a parent. Let's have a great year.
