My Beautiful Classroom

I can't believe it is going to be my 5th year teaching High School. This year I will be teaching 3 Introduction to Statistics classes, an Algebra IA class, and 2 Algebra IA-2nd Semester classes. This means I get a lovely mix of freshmen and sophmores and seniors..maybe some juniors. I have spent the past couple of days updating my classroom with decorative walls, attending teacher meetings, and planning for the first day as well as the rest of the semester. Surprisingly, I am REALLY looking forward to going back to me it's fun because I get to play and show my students how much fun and interesting math can be. Here are some pictures of my room!

My Mom's Birthday

Last night we took my mom to dinner for her birthday (which is actually next Sunday). We went to the Orange County Mining Company...yummy food!! I surprised her with the Mama Mia Soundtrack...our new favorite musical! I also got creative with dessert and made mini ice cream's actually in the form of cupcakes. It was Alex friendly too! Gluten Free chocolate cake mix and soy ice cream! ( had some fudge in there too...) Here are some pictures of the four of us! Happy Birthday Mom!
