Welcome to Mrs. Wood's website. I am really looking forward to a new year with new students. I really enjoy bringing students to a new level of understanding in math. As you begin the year remember that in order to be successful you need to believe in yourself and I will do my part to make learning a safe and nurturing experience. I want to share a little about myself so you can get to know your teacher as we begin this wonderful journey.
I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. I am married with 2 kids, one girl and one boy. Chloe is 9 and very smart. She enjoys reading, solving new problems in math and other subjects, playing the piano and dancing. Caleb is 6 who starts fist grade next year. He loves to ride his bike and scooter and loves to play with friends.
I graduated from the Utah State University with a BS in Psychology, math and health education. I taught for a year after graduation and my husband and I moved around a lot and swapped careers. I worked for the National Cancer Institute, SARCOM, and then was able to be a stay at home mom. I looked forward to the day I could return to teaching.
My passion in life is Fitness, I teach fitness classes and the local gym. I teach yoga, kickboxing, cycling. I love to run marathons and triathlons. I love baseball -- it truly is my favorite pass time!
I love a variety of activities including: hiking, reading books, playing games with my kids, and organizing my house. I love to go new places and see new things.
Remember to enjoy learning and make it a lifelong experience.Mrs. Wood
