Welcome to Thornton High School!
This is my 9th year teaching and my first 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 afraid of 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 1, 2, 7, 8) and supported Math 1 (period 3). I am available to help students in my class room, room 518 during period 4, and in the math office during period 6. I am also available by appointment during lunch.
On a personal level, I have been married for 30 years and have 5 children. My 2 youngest children are a freshman and senior in high school, so I know what it is like to be one of thse parents. :-) Have a great year.
