Welcome to Sixth Grade Math!

My mission for the class is pretty simple. I expect students to take an active role in their education. Students will have a variety of tools to help them achieve that- a Glencoe online textbook with a tutor, Glencoe physical textbook, MobyMax, Google Classroom, Symbaloo, Classroom Dojo, and access to current grades via Infinite Campus. Students will be taught and expected to use them. I believe that we learn from one another, so there will be both independent learning and cooperative learning. Students will also complete online assignments as well as paper ones.

I want the students to feel safe and comfortable sharing themselves, their knowledge, and their questions with each other. I expect the students to try new things, do their best (whatever the outcome), and be kind to each other. This should make it a fun, productive, and a comfortable place to learn and teach.


About Me

I received my Bachelors in Family Studies from the University of Arizona. Go Cats! This will be my sixteenth year teaching at Pioneer, fifteen in sixth grade, one in fifth. I am a Nationally Board Certified Teacher and completed the renewal process last year.

I live in Gilbert with my husband, Larry, my Mom, Carol, and our four children. Eddie is a sophomore in college at CGCC and Matt is in a sophomore in high school. Ryan works in the computer industry and Tori just graduated from ASU with a degree in Art. I understand things from the teacher and parent perspective, and know that each kid is unique!

This summer, like others, I spent a month teaching math summer school to sixth graders and tutoring. I went to a few movies, read some books and went to San Diego. I enjoy spending time with my family, learning new things, "playing" on the computer, doing yoga, and watching TV. I also LOVE teaching and learning!
