I am very excited to be back for my 7th year at Baines. I grew up on a ranch in Illinois, and am the 11th of 13 children. My niece owns a ranch out in Hearne, TX, and I love spending time there with my family. I have a 3 year old cat named Victor, effectionately known as Vic-tornado. Dad passed on in '03. Mom is still with us and we celebrate her every chance we get.
As a teacher, I want to inspire independent thinking in all my students. As adults, we must be critical thinkers and know how to problem solve. That is one aspect about math I love, solving problems. :) I look forward to working with you to have a great year as Longhorn year.
