About the teacher
Welcome to a new school year as an eighth grader. I am pleased to have you in this math class. I am very excited about this year and I hope you share in my enthusiasm. Since I will be working with you this year, I decided to share some things about myself.
I have lived in Rochester my whole life. I grew up in Greece, New York. I have one brother Kevin, who now lives in California. My parents still live in Greece in the same house I grew up in. I went to SUNY Brockport for my undergraduate degree and graduate degree.
I have worked at TCMS since the year 2000. I worked in the math lab for the first two years and have taught a mixture of seventh and eighth grade since then. This year I am teaching eighth grade math and algebra honors. I am looking forward to learning from you as much as you will learn from me.
I have been married over twenty years and celebrate my anniversary in October. My husband, Joe, and I have a daughter who was born in January 2004. Her name is Kylie Lynn and she keeps us busy. We also have a yellow lab named Jasper. He is full of energy and loves food! He is also a great addition to our family.
My family is very important to me. My husband and I spend a lot of time with our daughter. We wind down our day by taking walks with Kylie and Jasper. We live in Odgen, so there are plenty of places to explore. I wind down my day by running, bootcamp class and weight training. I enjoy reading and wish there was more time in the day to get lost in a good mystery.
As you work with me in math class this year, I hope you will learn how useful math is in our everyday lives. I also hope you are looking forward to a new school year and a new year of math. I am excited about this school year and I look forward to working with all of you.
