Hello, I am excited to spend the year with everyone! I cannot wait to open our minds, struggle, and learn with everyone. Get ready to get comfortable with the uncomfortable.
I love math and I want to share that excitement with my students or, at least, make all of my students excited to come to our math classroom everyday. This is my 2nd year at Mendenhall, teaching Algebra 1 and Math 8. I was a high school mathematics teacher for 10 years prior to my role here at Mendenhall as well as a stay-at-home mom for a year. I loved teaching at the high school level, but discovered last year that my new passion is working at the middle school. This is such a fun age group where students can still develop a strong growth mindset as well as acquire a love of math. This love of math developed when I was in middle school and pushed me to obtain my math degree. After getting married and having 2 children, a son Tyler (age 5) and a daughter Lillie (age 3), and living in multiple places, our family decided to make our home in Livermore. I am a graduate from the Livermore School system and I am excited to be a part of LVJUSD as a teacher and as a parent.
I hope that we can all have a successful year together, learning and growing.
