I was born in Buffalo, New York and received a B.S degree in Education at Baldwin-Wallace College, concentrating in math. After moving to Florida, I taught a variety of subjects at the middle school level for nineteen years. In 1995, my family and I moved to Maine and I have been teaching for eighteen years here, sixteen of them at Cave Hill. While at Cave Hill, I've been a member of many committees such as the Math team, the Positive Intervention Support team, Civil Rights team, Data team and others. For the past eight years, I have been the eighth grade adviser and am a mentor to our new teachers. I am also a member of the National Council of Teachers of Math.
8th Grade News
The 8th graders have been very busy raising money for their class trip, promotion and yearbook. We just had our fish fry and it was a huge success. All of the students worked endless hours preparing for it and worked very hard setting up and working at the dinner. Great job 8th graders!!!!
September has been a very busy month! In 8th grade social studies, we discovered what hominids are, performed an act out portraying them and did an assessment poster. All the kids really enjoyed that unit!
In 7th and 8th math, we're starting out with Geometry, finding area and circumference of a circle, perimeter of all polygons and classifying quadrilaterals. We've been doing hands-on activities to discover the formulas of each of the objects.
