      Hello Students,

    I look forward to being your Geometry teacher. This is my fourth year at the Academy for Advanced Studies, but not my first year of teaching. For 35 years, I have taught in Cobb, Dekalb, Clarke, Atlanta, and now Henry County Schools. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, and moved to Charleston, South Carolina, where I married and had three children. I moved to Georgia in 1985 and continued my education. I graduated from Georgia State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics and the University of Georgia with a Master's and Specialist Degree in Math Education. I also attended Atlanta Technical College majoring in Carpentry and Construction. I enjoy cooking and baking and have taken many cooking classes at the Art Institute of Atlanta's continuing education program. I also enjoy sewing. I've made several historical quilts that have traveled around the country. Knowing and teaching mathematics has helped me to learn and understand why it is a universal language. As you learn this semester, open your mind to explore new ideas. You can do anything you put your mind to. Geometry is not only exciting but relevant to everyday life. 

    You will experience the awesome benefit of having 2 teachers this semester. Ms. Valerie Russell and Mr. Stephen Burton. Mr. Burton is certified in Special Education. We are looking forward to helping students reach their highest potential and goals. What a team! Look out, you're in for a great learning experience!!!

    Parents and students can reach me via email. Conferences can be scheduled via the counselors between 1:30 and 2:45 pm.

     Remember to attend the open house. It will be from 2-5 pm Monday, July 31st.
