Welcome to Our Class!
This year I am looking forward to teaching fifth, sixth, and eighth grade math! It has been a long journey from teaching third and fourth grade math and being a math coordinator in my first school. Teaching math is my passion; it defines me as a person. The learning process is continual This year all our classes will be switching to Common Core Math standards and our new textbook series from Prentice-Hall.
This year I will try to increase the features of this site while monitoring the current links available. I am constantly researching new sites to enhance the teaching and learning of mathematics for the global community of students, teachers, parents, and others who utilize this web resource. I know that many of you now enjoy math with a deeper understanding and keener interest.
As we switch to Common Core Standards I hope to reorganize the content for each grade level. Certain modules may be temporarily unavailable. Please be patient during the development of this project. Stop back often to see what is new and to stay up to date on your math skills !!! I welcome your feedback and suggestions. And of course, thank you for your continued support!
In addition to working on this website, I enjoy spending time with my large family (five children and five grandchildren, soon to be six grandchildren!) and pets here at the shore. Reading, knitting, gardening, fishing, cooking, eating out, exercising, origami, puzzles and games, travelling, and home improvement projects are all part of my lifestyle. Besides being a math educator, I have a keen interest in the benefits of nutrition for learning and health for you and your children. I am a distributor for Juice Plus: (www.juiceplus.com/+wr15898)
Enjoy the Learning!!!! Follow a Healthy Lifestyle!
