Virtue of the month :  JOY

An Irish Prayer

May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow.
For every tear, a smile.
For every care, a promise.
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
a faithful friend to share.
For every sigh, a sweet song,
and an answer to each prayer.


I have been teaching for a total of 14 years, 9 years at St.Agnes.
I have been married for 36 wonderful years to my husband Jim. Together we have raised 3 great daughters, Ellen,Emma, and Gwen. 
I have lots of favorite sayings, but I think this one sums up a philosophy necessary to succeed in Algebra "Never, never, never give up'" --- Winston Churchhill

Students should be checking this website/google classroom daily to ensure that their class notes are up-to-date.

They should also be checking the HW answer key each day that is posted daily.  This is a great way for each student to keep up with the material and to check in detail if their HW is correct.  This is key to a successful year.
