Welcome to 7th grade at North Middle School!
This is my ELEVENTH year teaching in Menomonee Falls, however it is my 16th year teaching seventh / eighth graders. Not only is teaching my passion, I believe all students deserve the opportunity to reach their highest potential. I treat and teach each student in my class the same way I expect teacher's to teach my own two young boys. Through my high expectations, unique motivation, partnership between community and school, and knowledge of the Menomonee Falls Math Standards, I plan to make your student's seventh grade year both memorable and successful.
I am a 1999 graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. I currently hold a Wisconsin's educator license to teach grades 1st through 8th, with both a minor in Mathematics as well as Geography. In my years of teaching middle school, I have taught multiple subjects such as math, social studies, and language arts to both 8th and 7th graders. Additionally, I have taught Honors Algebra.
I am the mathematics teacher for House 7B. I teach five regular seventh grade classes. During Flex, I am responsible for a math intervention block. Each math teacher will be working in small groups with tested individuals to improve specific math concepts.
