"Mathematics isn't about numbers, equations, computations, or algorithms. It is about Understanding." - William Paul Thurston
Welcome to Smithfield Middle School & 7th grade!
You are in a very special place with teachers who are so excited to prepare you for the next step in your learning journey. I am privileged to be in my second year of teaching 7th grade at Smithfield Middle. I have taught all levels of middle school math in both public and private institutions, and I love being a part of the Smithfield Middle School family. I am a proud member of House Ubuntu - the House of Compassion. I received a BA and MEd from the College of William & Mary, and genuinely believe my calling is to teach middle school math. I love seeing my students light up when their light bulbs burn bright because they are understanding new concepts!
I am so excited to have you in my class and am confident we are going to have a amazing year full of learning, growth and fun!
