A little info about me.  I live in North Central Idaho and teach at a combined junior/senior high school of about 350 students.  I am entering my 7th year of teaching math.  I teach Calculus, Pre-Calculus, Algebra 2 and Geometry.  I love teaching and I love learning more about teaching.  My hope is that this blog will be a collection of good ideas I have, successful lessons I have taught, and new things I have learned that I can look back on down the road and continue to learn from.  Almost like an online journal.  But one that I wouldn’t mind other people reading.

Outside of teaching, I am a mother to three little boys and I am married to a wonderful man.  We have a lot of fun together as a family.  I love watching my own boys learn and I learn a lot from them about how kids learn.

    As a proponent of math education in the United States, we need your help to promote our nationwide math competition by blogging or posting about it on your blog/forum.

    As you probably already know, despite the fact that the US spends the most money on education per capita, our students are ranked 25th globally for math proficiency. The MATHCOUNTS Foundation is a nonprofit dedicated to improving that statistic. MATHCOUNTS’ third annual “ Math Video Challenge” is a math competition for 6th to 8th graders that encourages student innovation as they create and star in their own math videos, thus exciting them to pursue higher education in math.

    As the webmaster of YouCanSecantYou?, we are asking you to help support this effort by mentioning us in your next blog or forum post or promoting our logo with a link to the site. So far this contest has gathered over 500
    submissions and millions of views on the videos. Our goal this year is this year is to do even better. With your help, we are confident we will reach this goal.

    For more information on MATHCOUNTS or the Math Video Challenge, visit our webpages at mathcounts.org and videochallenge.mathcounts.org/math-camera-action.
