About Alison

A little bit about me...
     I actually started out as a history major. I knew I wanted to teach and I enjoyed my history classes in high school, so I figured I could teach history.
     Math was my worse subject in high school. I never thought I was very good at math. The problem was I was mistaking not enjoying math for being "bad at it." The truth was that I had some math teachers that I didn't get along with, so I just didn't enjoy the class. It wasn't until I got to college that I realized that I was good at math! A community college instructor named Karen Davis (there is a link to her website on my home page) really inspired me to try. I started getting A's on all of my tests! 
     I decided I wanted a challenge. My history classes weren't as much of a challenge for me, so I switched my major to math and never looked back!
