If you ask
any of my former students this question you may get some surprising

a little about me. I earned a Bachelors Degree in Marketing from the University of Wyoming and I obtained an Alternative Certification to teach secondary mathematics from Texas Teaching Fellows. I have taught Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and Precalculus. I am currently teaching Geometry and Algebra 2.
My husband and I decided to make El Paso our home
over 8 years ago. We are from Wyoming and so it has taken us a while to
acclimate to El Paso culture. I can honestly say that I have never lived
anywhere quite like El Paso. We have a 3 year old son, 1 year old
daughter and 2 dogs. When I'm not grading papers, I love to be outside
with family and friends, read and workout. I do a little of everything. I
like running, basketball, tennis, volleyball, golfing, mountain and
road biking, snowboarding and hiking.
