This is my 6th year at Mac-Hi and this year I am teaching teaching Algebra 1 Support, Algebra 2 and Geometry.  I have a Bachelors Degree in Education and a Secondary Mathematics Endorsement from Washington State University.  I'm currently working toward a Masters Degree, an EdM in Curriculum and Instruction with emphasis on mathematics and science.

Math is my favorite subject to teach and learn, and I used my math background in all the jobs I worked before I became a teacher!  Please call or send me an email if you have any questions or need further information about our math studies here at Mac Hi. 

Here's a link to a great website sponsored by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM): http://illuminations.nctm.org/.  This website has many fantastic activities and resources for math students!

Algebra 2 (Syllabus - click here)

This course reviews and extends Algebra 1 topics to include quadratic functions, expressions, and equations. Other functions including piecewise, absolute value, inverse, logarithmic, polynomial, root, and rational functions and their features, modeling with functions, and statistics, including normal distribution and standard deviation will be studied.  Prerequisite Algebra 1.

Geometry (Syllabus - click here)

This course reviews and extends Algebra 1 and 2 topics to include congruence, construction, and proof, connecting algebra and geometry, geometric figures, similarity and right triangle trigonometry, geometric perspective of circles, circles and other conics, modeling with geometry, and trigonometric functions. Prerequisite: Algebra 2.
