Degrees and Certifications:
4-8 Math Certified ESL
7th and 8th Grade Math
I am an Alumni of Sam Houston State University (Go Bearkats!) where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies and minored in Middle School Mathematics Education and graduated Magna Cum Laude.
As far as being a teacher -- I LOVE WHAT I DO! By teaching 7th and 8th grade I have the privilege of watching children grow into young adults. I am always amazed at how many inches a student will grow their 8th grade year. By teaching math I have the honor of introducing a large group of humans to the concept of reasoning and logic through math.
I have an open door policy; anytime a parent wants to meet or come to the classroom they are welcome. If you, as a parent, ever need to contact me please feel free.
Here are just a few words from previous students:
"Class with Ms.G was awesome, she always made sure you were taken care of and you understood the subject she was teaching. Ms.G made learning math fun, as cliche as that sounds it is true. She's a great teacher and all of you will have a great school year with her." - Dynis O
"I always thought math was boring in general and I was never really great at it but when I saw I was placed into p/ap math I was extremely confused (mostly because I never turn in homework) and i was scared I got a mean teacher that would kick me out, but I got the complete opposite. I got the best teacher in the school as my math teacher and I couldn't have asked for a better teacher (pls don't cry)"
"well you should know that you are a great teacher and you helped me alot because at the beginning of the year i didn't even like math and now i do well. ;) "
"You made it Pretty smooth, Like, You didn't throw a lot of information to us all at once, Because that`s how my 7th Grade year worked out, and I didn't learn anything that year because of that. -Joshua M."
"My math ability has definitely increased from being in your class. I have learned things quicker and been able to make higher grades on test."
"My 8th grade year of math was excellent having a teacher like Ms.G shes a teacher that's willing to take hours out of her day to help you if you are not understanding something."
