Getting to Know Me...
Hi Everyone! As much as every woman has the right to be a bit mysterious, I figured that it's only fair to give a little background information about myself, as I am learning so much about your children.
So, here it goes:
This will be my 8th year working as a full-time classroom teacher (and I worked in education for three years before that). For the first two years of my career I taught 6th grade science and literacy, and then 6th grade math and science for 3 years after that before joining the Lexington Public School System. My first year in LPS I taught 6th grade math and science as part of team Artemis, and then I taught strictly science as part of team Athena last year.
This year I am so excited to get back to team Artemis, as I am extremely passionate about teaching both math and science in tandem. I believe that by teaching both of these subjects I can more easily integrate the two content areas for my students in a meaningful way. I believe that students should be learning how to apply what they are learning in math to science, and how much these two subjects depend on each other.
I graduated from Lesley University in 2014 with my Master's in Middle School Math and Science, and I obtained my Bachelor's from the University of Maryland in College Park.
I hold teaching certifications in middle school math and science (5-8), elementary education (1-6), ESL (5-12) and my moderate disabilities license is currently pending.
On a more personal note, I was just celebrated my first wedding anniversary with my amazing husband Emmett. He is originally from Ireland so we have plenty of excuses to visit the Emerald Isle! I love all Boston sports teams, but the Patriots are by far my favorite. My maiden name is "Brady" so extra points go to students who can go back and forth between both last names! My favorite holidays are Halloween and April Fool's day (if that counts). I have two dogs - Mr. Dooley (a Rhodesian Ridgeback) and Mr. Goldie (a long-haired dachshund). I am also the math cloud (formally known as the math team) coordinatior.
If there's anything that I have missed or anything else that you are curious about please ask! Email is always your best bet when trying to get in touch with me.
