My Students

I love my Marvelous Math students! Since it's their 1st year in middle school, they arrive excited, and anxious at the same time. Often times, they come from elementary school struggling in Math, or not truly understanding mathematical skills and concepts. During their 6th grade year, it is SO important that they realize their potential in Math, and truly feel they can succeed, and enjoy Math!

I teach the sweetest, best students in the state of Texas!

After 28 years of Teaching, I STILL absolutely LOVE what I do every day! I have a passion for teaching, and love being able to share my love for learning with my students! My students represent diversity; ethnically and economically. The age range of my students is typically 11-12 years old.

My students are VERY appreciative for anything that is able to provide for them. My students LOVE getting funded for a project through They are in awe that people who don't personally know them would be so kind and generous to provide funds to help them. THANK YOU!

My Project

In Middle School Math, students need pencils to write with, and pencil top erasers to correct mistakes. In Math, mistakes are valuable to learn from. We can analyze the steps the student took in the problem to see exactly which step they made a mistake. We can "see" their thinking mathematically and help them with the part they are confused about. I always make sure my Math students know that it's okay to make mistakes in Math class. Providing these golf size pencils with erasers, and the pencil top erasers will allow my students the freedom to make mistakes in Math.
