Advice from Arizona State University to their math students:
"Did you know...
...that being a “math person” is a myth?
There is no such thing as a “math person.” Is math ability genetic? Sure, to some degree. But to succeed in math, inborn talent is much less important than hard work, preparation, and self-confidence. Anyone can learn math, including College Algebra, Calculus, and beyond, with regular practice and perseverance. The key to success in this course—and your other classes—is persistence. You will succeed in this class if you practice regularly."
I have been fortunate to teach at the Summit Academy Junior High Draper Campus since 2014. Each year brings exciting new discussions, students, and relationships. I have a Masters degree in Education and a Bachelors degree in Interior Design. I bleed blue, but not BYU blue. Go USU! I live in Herriman and my children attend Providence Hall High School. Some of my favorite things are Dr. Pepper, camping, visiting the beach, and reading a book every chance I get.
If you ever have questions or concerns or just want to say "hi", please send me a message! I love hearing from students (current, past, and future), parents, and friends.
Make it a great day!
