Welcome to my Geometry class in CASHS room B222! I enjoy teaching and like getting to know my students. You may wish to know more about me, too! I graduated from this school district and then earned my teaching degree from Penn State. I live in Chambersburg, so if you see me around, say hi! I have a son named Liam who is in 7th grade this year and he likes golf and swimming. He also plays video games. I have a few pets, too. First, and most important, is a doggie named Gracie Skye who is a joy to have in our lives. She is a Shih Tzu and we got her as a puppy in July 2018. I also have two birds. The first bird is a parrotlet named Turbo. He is a crazy bird who likes to bite and ironically, also to be cuddled and petted. He can say some words and likes to look out the window. He also enjoys getting angry. I have to give him some times each day where he can just be mad and enjoy himself. It's the way parrotlets are. We also have a parakeet named Dandelion. He can talk too and is very perky. My husband, Craig, is the supervisor of transportation for this school district. He gets you all on your buses! He may stop by my classroom once in a while.
I believe that all students can learn and that all students need encouragement to be interested to learn. You don't have to be outstanding in school to be outstanding in real life, but it sure helps. I try to make students feel comfortable in class and let them know that I enjoy talking to them and helping them. I expect students to keep up with homework and classwork because those assignments are designed to help them understand the current concepts that we are discussing in class. I think carefully about every task I give students and each one is given for a reason, whether to link concpets, lead to the next concept or reinforce the current topics. So please encourage your child to remain current with all assignments!
