Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.
...where you can see what we’re up to and the places we’re headed.
Although the information found here is valuable, the most important thing I can share with you is my goal. My goal is to help you reach your goal!
I am always eager to share my love and enthusiasm for math and teaching. So, please, always ask your questions.

Mistakes happen. That’s why it’s always best to use pencil so please make sure you have one. You will also need a place in your notebook for class notes and homework. Practice makes perfect so we need plenty of space. Additional materials such as a ruler, protractor or calculator may be needed from time to time but I will announce that during class. Please don’t cart them along every day as they tend to get lost.

I expect a classroom of mutual respect and continuous learning. I expect that each student comes to class prepared with their materials, completed homework, any and all questions they have and a desire to do their best. In turn, you can expect the same from me!
I received my bachelor’s degree in finance from Illinois State University and my master’s degree in education from DePaul. I love teaching and I’m thrilled to be part of the Pleasantdale community.
When I’m not in my classroom I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my husband and our daughter, Katelyn. We enjoy just about everything we do together but our favorite activites are traveling, hiking and swimming. Time by myself is usually spent running, although with a baby at home this doesn't happen nearly as often as it used to. So, I am looking forward to another great cross country season in the fall.
1. Students will solve addition and subtraction problems using whole numbers and apply to real world situations.
2. Students will solve multiplication and division problems using whole numbers and apply to real world situations.
3. Students will construct, analyze and interpret graphs and data.
4. Students will add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to the thousandths place and apply to real world situations, including currency.
5. Students will draw two dimensional shapes, angles, similar and congruent figures, lines, rays, parallel, perpendicular and intersecting lines, as well as polygons, triangles and quadrilaterals.
6. Students will add and subtract fractions and mixed numbers with like and unlike denominators, without regrouping. They will also multiply and divide simple fractions.
7. Students will find lengths of sides and perimeters to the nearest 1/8 in and area for squares and rectangles. They will estimate and measure in both metric and customary units.
8. Students will predict the outcome of a simple event and determine and compare the probability of a simple event. They will create a simple ratio.
Mastery Statements – Above Level
1. Students will read, write, and problem solve using numbers to the trillions place in various forms.
2. Students will translate mathematical vocabulary to an appropriate algebraic expressions and equations.
3. Students will create and interpret bar, line and circle graphs, including identifying misleading components.
4. Students will compute sums, differences, products and quotients of decimals to the hundred thousandths place and will apply these computation skills to real life situations.
5. Students will select and use measurement instruments, convert between systems, calculate measurements using given formulas and apply measurement skills in real life situations.
6. Students will demonstrate number sense by applying divisibility, finding prime factorization and identifying multiples. They will convert between fractions, decimals and mixed numbers in order to compare and order the quantities.
7. Students will add and subtract fractions and mixed numbers with like and unlike denominators with regrouping.
8. Students will find the product and quotient of whole numbers, fractions and mixed numbers.
9. Students will identify integers and compute sums of integers. They will construct a coordinate graphing system in order to locate the position of coordinate points.
10. Students will distinguish between ratios and rates to formulate and solve proportions related to real life situations.
