Welcome to Math 8 and Andersen Junior High Home of the Jaguars
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor's in Secondary Education and Mathematics. I later went on to earn my Master degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Northern Arizona University. In addition, I received a Master degree in school counseling from Grand Canyon University in 2010. I am highly qualified in the state of Arizona to teach mathematics.
My Educational Philosophy
I am very passionate about my job and dedicated to helping my students realize their capabilities in math! I believe effective teaching is an interactive, collaborative process in which students and teachers work together to examine and re-create knowledge. Both bring their own experiences and perspectives to the teaching-learning process. I believe ALL students have the ability to learn math! You have to do the math in order to learn the math and it is my job to facilitate that process.
