    I have worked for St. Louis Public School for the past 9 years (8 years at Compton-Drew ILC Middle School).  This will be my third year as a Middle School Mathematics Educator.  In addition to teaching mathematics, I am going into my 9th season as the Varsity Volleyball Coach. I am currently working at Lutheran North High School.  Most importantly, I am also a wife (10 years as of September 2020) and mother of 2 very busy handsome boys Tatum Jr. & Tobias and I enjoy spending time with my family.  They mean the world to me.


    Again, welcome to 6th Grade Mathematics, where “MATH IS COOL”. 😊
