I'm a member of the Desmos Fellowship, cohort 1. It is the best thing to have happened to me in my professional life. I received by B.S. in Middle Level Education from Valparaiso University, my M.Ed. in Mathematics Education from National Louis University, and my M.Ed. in Technology Education from Concordia University. I love the Hunger Games, Finding Nemo, The Sandlot, tacos, the color pink, and of course, cupcakes! I also have the best two cats, Grant (right) and Storm Shadow (left), that I adopted in 2007!
So why is my blog called "Cupcakes and Pi"? First off, I LOVE cupcakes. I make it a point to get a cupcake in every city I visit. I'm a picky eater, so the idea that I can pick out whatever flavor I want is amazing! In addition, I am a nerd about all things pi! I find pi absolutely fascinating! I started school-wide Pi Day activities at my school back in March 2008, my second year teaching. We began a pi reciting contest and a pi poster competition. Over the course of the years, students strive to beat the school record. The school record of 418 digits set in 2015 was shattered this year when Ryan S recited 504 digits of pi! Check out these results!
