Welcome

Welcome to my page. Links to course information and assignments are to the left. 

This school year, I will be teaching Trigonometry/Pre-Calculus, Algebra II, and Applied Geometry.

I graduated from Meridian and am excited to be have rejoined the Hawks community as a teacher in 2018. I am entering my sixteenth year of teaching and have spent the past fourteen years teaching math and engineering at Riverton High School.

I obtained a bachelor’s degree from Millikin University in Mathematics/Secondary Education and a master’s degree from the University of Illinois at Springfield in Teacher Leadership. I completed additional coursework in teaching engineering at both the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the Milwaukee School of Engineering. I am a member of the Junior Welfare Association of Macon County, Illinois Council of Teachers of Mathematics, and the Alpha Zeta chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma, a teaching society.
