This school year, I will be teaching:
MAT142 College Mathematics is a dual enrollment class available for 3 college credits through Chandler/Gilbert Community College. Topics include: personal finance, set theory, linear
programming, exponential growth and decay, probability and statistics.
Honors Pre-Calculus is a dual enrollment class which combines MAT152 College Algebra and MAT 182 Plane Trigonometry for 3 credits each through Chandler /Gilbert Community College. Topics include: equations, functions (linear, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic, polynomials, rational, trigonometric and inverse trigonometric), transformations, trigonometric equations, trigonometric identities, graphing of trigonometric functions, solutions of triangles, applications, complex numbers, polar coordinates, DeMoivre's theorem, logarithms, exponential functions, partial fraction decomposition, conic sections, sequences and series.
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your young adult to a new year. I have been a professional educator for 27 years. I have an Associate of Arts in Mathematics/Computer Science, a Bachelor’s of Science in Mathematics, two Master of Arts degrees, and a real estate license. I am a Chandler/Gilbert Community College on-campus dual enrollment instructor. I am also an adjunct professor at Central Arizona College. I have been a GPS employee for 22 years. I am an original jaguar who has been the Employee of the Month, in two editions of Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers, and nominated for the DisneyHand Teacher Award. This school year, I am the campus representative for the district’s teacher/superintendent advisory committee meetings. I also help improve the quality of education in our state for all students by working with the AZ Department of Education for the last 15 years. My most recent projects include being on the high school mathematics advisory team, editing the performance level descriptors for Algebra I and Algebra II, and item selection for the Algebra II AzMerit test.
I am excited about providing educational services to your young adult. Please contact me if you have comments or concerns. I look forward to having an awesome school year!
