About

Hi. I’m Sara and I teach 8th grade math in North Carolina. I started out teaching Algebra I then added 8th Grade Math and then added Geometry. Geometry then morphed temporally to Algebra 2 which I LOVED.  Now that Common Core is implemented I teach CC 8th grade math and CC Math II.

This is a second career for me. For 15 years I worked in the retirement benefits consulting industry. I then took a few years off while my kids were middle schoolers. (That’s when they need you.) I spent a lot of time at my daughter’s school and my husband told me if I was going to spend that much time at school, I needed to get paid for it. I bid farewell to the PTA and attended UNCG to earn my masters in Middle Grades Math. That was fun and I loved it. I started working at the school I am at today in 2006.

My school has about 1,000 students in grades 6 through 8. Due to urban sprawl the school setting is a mix of suburban and rural households.

  1. I glad to meet you thru your blog. I started teaching just 6 years ago after A Grad Cert program following a career in Investment Brokerage. Similarly, my husband told me to make working at our daughter’s middle school a paid job, LOL! Teaching is way more difficult then any other high paid job I’ve fulfilled in the past. Less money, much harder work!, Thanks for sharing!
