Hello! I am a retired math teacher with over 34 years of experience. Most of my years were at Jackson Middle School in the Anoka-Hennepin School District. I have a lot of experience working with middle school age students, and I LOVE teaching Algebra! Since officially retiring in June of 2016, I went right back into the classroom, filling in for math teachers on a long-term absence - twice back at Jackson Middle School, and once at Anoka Middle School, where I actually taught back in 1987. Don't worry! If I seem old to you, I am very young at heart, have a sense of humor, and have always maintained a growth mindset. My students needed to repeat this phrase if they ever said that they can't do math, or they just don't get it: "I haven't learned . . . YET." Remember: "Inch by Inch, Algebra is a Cinch!" . . . which means, just bite off a little bit every day, and it will seem easy for you. I'm just around the corner in Ramsey, MN, and am here to help YOU!
