Welcome to the 2018-19 school year!

 

I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri.  I have been married for 29 years and have 3 daughters. My daughters are all Tomball High School graduates! This is my 12th year teaching mathematics at Tomball High School. I can't imagine teaching anywhere else. I am looking forward to another wonderful year!

 

The math courses I teach are all college-level and students earn credit through Lone Star College. My students have an opportunity to study mathematics in depth with a heavy emphasis on analytical thinking. More important than learning math is learning how to learn by making connections, formulating questions, and preparing for tests. Battling successfully with problems that are hard to solve and ideas that are difficult to understand fosters perseverance, determination, self-confidence, and intellectual rigor. These are transferable skills students will use and continue to improve for the rest of their life.
