Welcome Back!

Welcome to Silva Math
My name is

Catherine Palmer




If you ask any of my former students this question you may get some surprising responses. Expect to hear anything from, "She's the moody teacher that loves chocolate" to "AHHHHHHH! Make sure you take notes!". I like to believe that there are students out there that actually learned something in my class. I am keeping my fingers crossed that former students will be thankful for all the factoring they practiced in my class.

Welcome to another wonderful year of Silva Math! Mathematics is great for two simple reasons. First, it's the same in every language. Second, there is always an answer. Obviously there are other reasons to love math but these are my favorite.

Here's 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.
