All About Ms. Nary
Though we will learn a lot about each other throughout the semester, I thought I could tell you a little bit about myself to get us acquainted.
I am from a small town much like Walton, called Salamanca in the Southern Tier in New York.  I graduated top of my class then attended SUNY Brockport to get my bachelor's and master's degrees in mathematics.  I then took a semester to teach algebra at Genesee Community College. In the fall of 2011, I started working on my PhD in mathematics at Syracuse University.  I taught precalculus, calculus I and calculus II, and studied knot theory, a new area of topology.

However, I discovered that my heart lies in teaching, so once I finished all my classes and started my research, I left the program to return to my passion.  I have taught AlgebraII/Trigonomety and Geometry in summer school, and have been grading the state exams for 5 years.
In the past, I had the wonderful experience of teaching Precalculus, Calculus, Algebra II, and Algebra I labs.  I have been able to watch the transition to Common Core for Algebra II and am very excited for the critical thinking skills being emphasized in this new curriculum.  I also had the pleasure of watching so many sporting events and getting to know the students through the musical, Speech and Debate club, and the GSA.
This year, I will be teaching Precalculus and Calculus for college credit through the Fast Forward program through BCC.  I am thrilled that I can be a part of this wonderful opportunity for our students!  I am also teaching both Algebra I and Algebra II.  I will continue to be the advisor for Speech and Debate and GSA, as well as continue my work with the musical and drama productions.
I am absolutely thrilled to have joined the wonderful community here at Walton High School!

Extra Help
It is my goal to ensure that all students are successful in my classes.  As such, I am more than willing meet to provide extra help!  I am free 1st and 2nd periods, and would love to offer help during homeroom. Please feel free to contact me so we can schedule a time that works with both of our schedules.  
You can also Facebook message me pictures of your work so that I can provide quick individualized assistance.
