    Math should be viewed as a puzzle, or a game, in which every single one of us can win once we experience the power of our problem solving capabilities. 

    "The essence of mathematics is not to make simple things complicated, but to make complicated things simple."  ~S. Gudder

    My Classroom Mission

    To strive towards connecting mathematics with situations that we face every day. We will explore not only how to solve problems, but why we solve them the way we do. My mission is for students to walk out of my classroom better prepared for the future.
    About Me

    I am a Starmount High School graduate and have graduated from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a degree in Mathematics and a minor in Secondary Education. This will be my sixth year teaching and I am proud to be a part of the North Iredell community.  I will be teaching Foundations of Integrated Math I and Success Academy in the fall and Integrated Math III and Success Academy in the spring. I am also the head baseball coach and co-athletic director.  I look forward to working with everyone here at North Iredell High.
