About Me

This is my fifth year of teaching math. Before teaching, I had a career doing public relations for nonprofit and human service organizations. At SHS, I teach grade-level Algebra II and grade-level geometry. I have a BA in journalism/Spanish from the University of Wyoming and a MBA with a concentration in corporate finance from Texas Christian University.

Make-Ups

Minimize

For the most part, you should be prepared to take a quiz or test on the day it was scheduled. Believe me, postponing a quiz or test will not be all that helpful for you. You'll forget what you've learned about the subject because we'll be moving on in class, and (even though you'll have the best of intentions) you'll forget to study at home.

If you are absent on the day of a quiz or test, you can make it up over the course of two morning tutorials or one afternoon tutorial. Your grade will go from I to 0 in the gradebook if you do not make it up within two weeks, but I would still actually let you make it up for full credit any time before the end of the six-weeks.

HOMEWORK: I do not believe that practice makes perfect. I believe that perfect practice makes perfect. Therefore, I have structured most days so that we will have time to finish the daily assignment during class. This gives me the chance to work with you one-on-one to make sure you're understanding the material. Daily assignments will be graded on accuracy and will become 0s if not turned in by the end of class. If you are absent from class on the day we have a daily assignment, or if you simply just didn't turn your assignment in, you have until the end of the six-weeks to turn in your missing work. It will still be graded on accuracy.
