    M.Ed.-Mathematics Education

    I am teaching Algebra 1 and Math Topics this year at Sentinel. Each day we will practice building a growth mindset, an appreciation of math and learning, and develop curious persistence towards fun and challenging problems. Math is not a spectator sport. We will all aim to help each other actively engage, wrestle, and play with math (and then consolidate/review) to understand how and why it works. This research is the foundation for how our classroom will function.

    Having grown up in Missoula, I continue to appreciate living and learning with the people here. Exploring the mountains and rivers around us is an opportunity I like to take when possible.

    If you have any questions about the class or ideas on how we can help make it a better learning experience, send me an email and we will work something out from there.
