My name is Bethany, and I am a former math teacher turned homeschool mom who now enjoys life with these four little people….
and loves serving alongside this handsome man…
I am also a proud graduate of James Madison University (GO DUKES!!), with a degree in Mathematics and a degree in Teaching, and was the recipient of the “Thompson Learning Future Mathematics Teacher Award.” Suffice it to say, I am undoubtedly a “math geek,” and I’m totally okay with that!
But I don’t just love math. I am also passionate about helping students understand, thrive and hopefully come to love math as well! I have taught in a variety of classroom settings, and have also tutored one on one, but inevitably the struggles are the same.
My goal was, and is always, to break through the barriers, redefine for students who a “math person” is, and enable students to really understand the why of mathematics, rather than simply memorizing seemingly nonsensical procedures and formulas.
My goal on this site is to provide teachers and homeschoolers with valuable and rich math learning materials, as well as links to other great sites and aids, and to help parents and students learn how to thrive and succeed in the secondary math classroom.
Whether teacher, homeschooler, parent or student, there’s something here for you! And if you have any questions, concerns or material you would like addressed on this site, or just a question for me directly, please feel free to contact me! I would love to hear from you!
