About Mrs. Shockey
For the 2020-2021 school year, I teach Functions/Trig. and Introductory Calculus.
I like math. I'm good at math. I truely believe that I am good at presenting new math concepts, answering the "How?" and the "Why?", and stressing the importance of understanding math, not just doing math.
However, as the teacher of seniors, there is more to my job than just teaching math. It is my mission to help my students grow into accountable young adults who are prepared to be independent and productive members of our community. In addtion to teaching problem-solving skills, I stress the importance of being accountable for one's own learning and success. I expect students to be resourceful. This includes, checking Canvas for notes, answer keys and the daily agenda and assignments. This also includes using solution sets to check the accuracy of their work on a daily basis. I want my students to be resilient, persistent and develop confidence in their ability to learn new things!
