Degrees and Certifications:
Hi my name is Alissa Davies. I studied secondary education and mathematics at the University of Nevada, Reno and have been a part of the community for the last four years. During my free time I enjoy many outdoor activities including gardening, hiking, snowboarding and playing with my puppy.
I am very excited to be on this educational journey together. I hope each student can make gains for their own personal levels of understanding and capabilities. I believe that learning math develops more than simple math skills and it is important for problem solving skills as well. Learning math helps with organized processes, logical thinking and general problem solving. I hope to allow students to make connections to math in the real world by using application examples. My main goal for the semester is to keep students motivated, engaged and excited about learning math. I hope each and every child in my classes will come out with the ability to think mathematically and demonstrate their knowledge in meaningful ways.
I am very excited for this year, and I hope you all are as well!
