Hello!

Welcome to Helena High School.  I have had the privilege of teaching here for the last 17 years and continue to love working with students to learn math.  This year I am teaching 3 sections of College Algebra 1st semester and Statistics 2nd semester.  Students have the opportunity to take either or both semesters for dual credit through Helena College.  I am also teaching 2 sections of Algebra I.  I am looking forward to a great year.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
