Welcome to 8th Grade Mathematics!

This is my 14th year in Menomonee Falls and my 15th year teaching middle and secondary level mathematics. At all levels, it is my goal to promote and encourage mathematical thinking and to challenge and support students in reaching their personal learning goals.

This is our 3rd year using Schoology. I will update Schoology regularly so that students and parents are aware of "what's happening" in our classroom. Please check out Schoology for important information for your specific class. There are important messages, homework, weekly plans, web site links, and due dates in Schoology. This is a great communication tool that I encourage all students and parents to utilize throughout the year. Open communication between school and home is the key to success for all students. Please don't hesitate to contact me about any questions or concerns you have throughout the year. 

I am looking forward to a fun, exciting, and successful 2017-2018 school year!
