I grew up on a cattle ranch in Southwestern Colorado. I enjoy returning to the ranch to help irrigate and move cattle. After graduating from CSU in 1996, I moved to China where I studied Chinese language for two years. Upon returning to the States in 1999, I started teaching at Poudre High School. I have taught Integrated Math I, II and III, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, College Algebra, Discrete Math, Data Analysis and Probability, Precalculus, IB Math Studies SL and IB Mathematics SL. I have been teaching MYP classes since 2005. I earned a Master's Degree in Mathematics Teaching through the University of Northern Colorado and the University of Wyoming in 2013. I earned my National Board Certification in Mathematics in December 2017, and a flipped teaching certification in the summer of 2019. I also update my cat's Instagram pictures on a fairly regular basis. You can follow her at Saffiya_the_cat.
