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 many 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 continue 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 Math Labs, 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 production.  I have accepted the new challenge of being co-advisor of the Drama Club with Mrs. Davies.  I am looking forward to this exciting chapter.
 
I am absolutely thrilled to have joined the wonderful community here at Walton High School!
