Miss LaFerriere's TWA Math pages
Welcome to my homepage and to the 2020-2021 school year! I hope that you find this web site easy to navigate and are able to get all of the information that you need to keep up-to-date with your work and be successful in math!
For those of you who don't know me already, here's a little about my background: This is my 14th year here at West Linn High School and my 23rd year teaching math. I got my undergraduate degree from Providence College (go Friars!) and my Masters degree from the University of Rhode Island.
I grew up on the East Coast and moved here 13 years ago. And of course, I am a loyal fan of all the New England teams: Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics and Bruins (you'll be able to tell this when you see my classroom)! If there's a big game on, you can bet I'll be watching it, so feel free to come by my room (B101) and chat about it after. I also have the cutest dogs ever and would love seeing pictures of your pets too!
You should also know that I REALLY love doing math! For reals. Now, I understand that not everyone does....but, I expect you to at least try your hardest and put forth your best effort (aka do all your homework) and, of course, stay positive! :-)
This year I am teaching Discrete, Trig and AP Calc AB. They are all great classes and hopefully you will learn a lot about how important math is in our society. So....get your pencils ready and let's get the rest of this year completed with success!!
I know many of you are probably feeling a little anxious about Comprehensive Distance Learning, and to be honest, so am I. However, after the first week of school you will feel a lot less nervous and have a better understanding of the platforms we will be using as we proceed with online learning. We will get through this together and I'm excited to learn some new things right along with you!
P.S. I love animals, especially my two rescue dogs! :)
Coco and Kobe are Pats fans too!! Chillin' on the couch :)
