About Ms. Amanda...
Hello, I am thrilled to be working with you and your students here at Hamilton High School! I myself attended school in the Chandler Unified District and am glad to be back teaching Math. Yo hablo español, je parle français, e eu falo um pouco de português.
My Education and Professional Background
I received a B.A. in Business, Global Politics from Arizona State University, though Barrett, the Honors College.
My Educational Philosophy
Math class is more than just the numbers on the page, and the equations on the board, it's a language of logic, of right answers, and of rules to follow. Math teaches us to be disciplined and organize our thinking so that we can detect patterns and make informed guesses. Growing up in a world where information is cheap and messy, these are some of the most valuable skills you can learn. –Paraphrased from a book called The Smartest Kids in the World- Amanda Ripely
