"No Child has an Expiration Date!" I am a proud graduate of Central Michigan University and the University of Detroit Mercy. I received my Masters of Arts degree in Teaching Elementary Mathematics over 20 years ago. Since graduation, I was nominated, "Michigan Teacher of the Year." I was selected out of many applicants, as one of our district's Master Math Teachers. I am most passionate about instilling the love of Math in my students. One way this love of Math has been displayed is when I provided the 1st District-Wide Math Bee template to the former Math Director. My Math Bee template set the stage for our District's annual Math Bees(over 8 years ago.) I believe every student can excel in Math, regardless of their learning style and their zip code. I have had remarkable success with my students over the years (My students' test scores have afforded me the opportunity to earn the honorable title, "Master Math" teacher.) I am most proud of the title, "Mom." I have three children.One of my children was diagnosed with a learning disability. It brought me so much joy to create songs and rhymes to help him learn Math in his own classroom. My special needs son has since graduated(C/O 2019.) My daughter received a scholarship to Michigan State(C/O 2020.) My youngest son is currently in high school. In my spare time, I enjoy learning new Math techniques, bike riding and watching basketball.
