Welcome to Pre Algebra and Algebra! Math is such an important part of our daily lives, as well as our futures. I am happy to be part of such an important part of the ACP-O family.

My Education and Professional Background

I attended NMSU and graduated with a BBA in Human Resource Management and a BBA in Productions Operations Management. While I didn't minor in any subject, I took numerous math classes and could have easily minored in math had that been an option at the time. I worked in the business world for 20 years in management positions and achieved a great deal of success. I left that world to spend more time with my sons and as a result, the education field became a perfect fit. I received my sub certification and began subbing which turned into long term assignments in several schools here in the Chandler and Gilbert area. I taught science at Gilbert Jr High for a year. I taught language arts on a long term assignment at San Tan Jr. High. I taught PE for a year at Shumway Elementary. I taught Special Ed at Shumway, also for a year. I taught math on several long term assignments at Willis in the CAT's program.

My Educational Philosophy

My most recent full time assignment was teaching Algebra and 8th grade math at Andersen Jr. High. While at Andersen, I also coached 7th and 8th grade basketball. Most of my experience in the classroom as been in teaching math. I have successfully passed the math state exam, which is the exam needed to be allowed to teach math in Arizona. Along with passing that test, I've also taken the high school business exam which allows me to teach business courses at the high school level. I currently coach Freshman, JV, and varsity tennis at Chandler High School. This spring I am going to start work on my Masters of Education degree through the University of Arizona.
