About the Teacher

    (My phone connects directly to voicemail and I check my voicemail infrequently. Email is definitely the best way to contact me.)

    For Students

    1. For assignments, answer keys, notes, announcements, and other day-to-day classroom happenings, check the Google Classroom page for your class.
    2. Although I love teaching in the classroom, I always want more time to work with my students individually. If you want to meet with me in zero period, advisory, during one of my prep periods, or after school, send me an email. I've never had a student who didn't come away from a meeting with me feeling more confident about their work in the classroom.
    3. I feel like there should be three things, but I think 1 and 2 cover it...

    For Parents

    1. I am excited about parents who are involved in their children's education. If you have concerns, questions, or just want to say hello, send me an email. 
    2. I don't get to see you nearly as often as my students, so I think face-to-face meetings (or even telephone calls) can be a much better way to connect than by email. Just start with an email request, and I'll make time for you!
    3. If you want to follow your student in my class on Google Classroom or Infinite Campus, and you're not doing so already, please reach out. I'll try to help connect you, or refer you to someone who can.

  • About Me

    I had a long first career before returning to the classroom over the past few years, and I am so happy to be here.

    I graduated from high school right here at Big Sky and then left Montana for college and graduate school. I've lived and worked in Seattle, New York City, Chicago, and the San Francisco Bay Area, but I'm very excited to be back in Montana.

    When I'm not teaching math or working with students, you'll find me spending time with family, running on roads and trails, trying to keep my old log cabin from falling apart, or convincing myself to read a book instead of watching HBO.
