have enjoyed teaching math for over twenty years in different settings
from kindergarten to community college. I love teaching here at Baptist
Hill where I can use my gift of encouragement along with my love for
math and young people.
I grew up here in Charleston, and graduated from St. Andrew's High School (a long time ago!). I have lived in Kentucky and Indiana for 28 years and am glad to be back "home" in Charleston!
In my free time, I love to spend time with my family, including: my husband, my sisters and their families who live here in Charleston; my children and grandchildren who live in Georgia and Tennessee, and my church family at Charleston Baptist Church.

Instructional Philosophy: I believe that every student has the ability to succeed at math, although at different academic levels and with different learning styles. Therefore, my responsibility as a teacher is to assess at what level and with what style of instruction each student learns best, and then to use different teaching techniques to reach each student in my classroom. I also believe that part of my teaching responsibility is to encourage and motivate each student to achieve to his/her highest potential.
Probability and Statistics: This course serves as an introduction to probability and statistics with applications. The topics we will cover include combinatorics, random variables, probability distributions, hypothesis testing, confidence intervals, and linear regression. This is a very practical course where we will be using real-world data to look for trends. This course will prepare you for a college level probability and statistics course and be helpful in many business related careers.
Pre-Calculus (H): This course introduces concepts in basic and advanced algebra, and trigonometry. We will explore topics such as logarithms, solving or graphing linear equations, and factoring a polynomial at a more advanced level than in a beginning or intermediate algebra class. This course will prepare you for a Calculus class in high school or college.
AP Calculus: Calculus is different than any other math course you have taken. Many of your previous math courses were heavily weighted to being able to perform a process to get an answer. Calculus is more about understanding concepts, including the why and how of mathematics. This Calculus course, known as the AB part, is equivalent to a first semester college Calculus course. This course will be challenging and demanding, but exciting and rewarding at the same time. If you score a 3, 4, or 5 on the AP Exam at the end of the year, you can earn college credit for this course.
Make-Up Policy: Students have 5 days to contact their teacher and make up any missing work when they return from being absent. It is the student’s responsibility. There will be no makeup work accepted after the 5 days. There will be an exception made for students with chronic illness or valid circumstances for which they were absent. Their makeup period will be decided by collaboration with guidance, the teacher, parent(s), and administration when necessary.
Grading Procedures: Students’ grades will be based on a percent system:
