Hey Eagles and Eagles' Parents!
About me: I earned my BA in Mathematics and teaching certification attending the wonderful University of Texas at Austin, Hook 'em Horns! I am a huge math/art geek and teaching is everything to me. I have been lucky enough to develop a strong community over the last 10 years as part of the Akins' staff. I have taught Geometry, Algebra 1, and both High School and OnRamps Pre-Calculus. I appreciate my AHA peers and enjoy seeing all the wonderful productions from theater and band and can't wait for the soccer season to start up. Lastly, I am part of the Math Leadership Team as the Instructional Coach where I get to observe and assist every math subject taught on our amazing campus.
So glad you will be joining my courses, Algebra 1 or OnRamps Pre-Cal, this 2018-19 year.
