Welcome to Algebra 2!

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Illinois Wesleyan University in 2001 with a double major in Elementary Education and French. I completed my Masters in Teaching and Learning in 2005 at Saint Xavier University. I began my teaching career teaching middle school French for 9 years in Illinois and then at Willis Junior High. I began teaching math at Payne Junior High in 2010. I had the privilege of working with seventh and eight grade students teaching courses from Math 7 to Algebra 2.

My Educational Philosophy

My philosophy is that students learn math best when they have an opportunity to engage with mathematics, can practice and formalize their understanding and are able to apply the mathematics to real-world situations.
