Hi Paul,
Welcome to a place where we're all looking to further our knowledge and appreciate people who have the gifts to further the knowledge of adolescents! And in math, no less! My grandmother was a math teacher who was so skilled at her craft that at the age of 91 she was able to convince the staff of her nursing home that she had taught then-about-to-resign President Nixon math by describing in detail his math weaknesses. A good math teacher never retires; she just savors the memories.

Feel free to ask any questions, to check out the WIKI and to use the Search function (the magnifying glass in the upper right hand corner of the page near your user name.) Quick note: If you would like your user name to be different than your teacher name, just send an email to

Eons ago I was a H.S. English teacher and not so long ago a special ed. administrator who worked with lots of M.S. staff, kids and families. I found that M.S. teachers (almost) always have a sense of humor, are skilled in circumventing obstacles to learning (including ones imposed by administrators!) and use teamwork to solve problems in order to help others. This community is a lot like a great Middle School faculty: active, noisy, able to agree to disagree, with a "got your back" attitude of supporting each person in a sometimes confusing new world.

Enjoy exploring this site, and enjoy also the crazy last few weeks of school before a well-deserved summer break.
4/4 and still an optimist!
