I teach 5th grade math in a middle school setting. I'm constantly looking for ways to challenge my students and stretch their thinking in class while meeting a variety of different needs and learning styles. I'm very interested in brain research, and I use current discoveries to create engaging lessons for my students. I use the Singapore Math program and I like their challenge problems for higher level learners. This is my 27th year teaching, and I love the ever-changing dynamics of my students, who make me smile everyday. I have a B.A. from the University of Northern Iowa and a M.Ed. from Northern Arizona University. I live in Mequon, WI with my husband and two college boys, who occasionally come home from UW Madison and U of Iowa to eat, sleep and do laundry.
