I want to tell you a little about myself. I come from a large family. I have 3 brothers and 3 sisters. All of us still live in Illinois so I am still able to see them a few times a year.

I have been married for over 25 years to the same person, he is my backbone. We have two wonderful grown sons who both live about 30 miles away. I finally got a daughter two years ago when my oldest son got married. Grandchildren are not a part of our lives right now but I am sure they will be in the upcoming years.

I teach in the same school district that I graduated from, it was one of my goals as a teenager. The name of the district where I teach is PORTA CUSD #202 in Petersburg, IL. It is a unit district in a rural farming community.

I am taking this course so that I can stay on top of what is going on in the geometry classroom and to help the teachers I work with stay attune to what is going on. Two things I would like to get out of this class are ways to help my fellow teachers strengthen the geometric abilities of their students and to find activities that those teachers can implement to involve transformations into their teaching.

Have a Great Day
