The Blake Middle School
Mathematics Teacher and Team Lead
Minneapolis, MN
I have been a lower and middle school Mathematics enthusiast (and teacher) for 20 years. Starting in public elementary school in St. Paul, MN, I then worked at American Community School Hillingdon in London, UK for 4 years, where I moved into the Middle School classroom. When I returned to the US to a job at the Blake School (Minneapolis), I decided that Middle School is where my passion lies. I am lucky to work with a team of teachers that values problem-solving, growth mindsets (particularly mathematics), and student centered learning to their core. Together, we have adopted and adapted CPM, Math in Focus, and the Exeter Math 1 and 2 Curriculum (from Philips Exeter Academy). Getting to the heart of how students understand math and their perception of themselves as capable mathematicians is what keeps me passionate about this field. The biggest way my professional life has changed since my early teaching days is realizing that Master Teachers don't have all the answers, they present the questions in an interesting way and get excited about exploring with their students. I love that I am still seeing new connections between Algebraic and Geometric ideas I previous thought I completely understood. I hope my nerdy enthusiasm for these discoveries inspires to my students as we learn together. Aside from teaching, I love running and biking (when MN weather will permit it), walking my new puppy, traveling when my schedule will allow, and watching my two kids (Piper 11 and Liam 9) Irish Dance. My guilty pleasures? Iced Coffee, Friends, and Sunday morning "walks" (my husband tell our kids we are "exercising" then walk to a nearby coffee shop where we drink coffee and eat banana chocolate chip bread...this has been going on for some time).
