Welcome to my 7th Grade Math class! I am excited to be an Indian this year. I have worked in CMCSS for fourteen years now. I have been a parent volunteer, substitute teacher, an Educational Assistant at RES and CHES, and a Fellowship Teacher at KMS in 6th grade math. I have three children who have all gone to MCMS. My youngest will graduate this year from MCHS. I enjoy many different things such as hiking, photography, and drawing. My favorite places to be are in the mountains and on the beaches. I hope that this year will be an exciting and enriching year for us all.
