• I have studied math and education at Potsdam College, and at the University of Georgia. I have taught middle school math here in Georgia for the past eighteen years.  I am very happy to now be part of the Ola team.

    The 8th grade year is critical in that a strong finish to the middle school math career with set the tone for a successful high school career.  A strong high school career in math leads to students to have the ability to be able to select a college major from every subject area.   

    I love math and I love teaching.  My goal for every student in my class is to not only excel, but to come away from our year together with an appreciation for math.  Students that like math will naturally spend more time practicing, and the growth will occur.

    Wishing you a good year in math!
