About Wendy

pic from 070416 editHey there. My name is Wendy. I love kids and enjoy mathematics.

I believe that the mastery of                   Mathematics is Key to Success in college and beyond. Math teaches logic, critical thinking, and creative problem solving. I use a scholar centered, project based approach to education where students have the opportunity to review and revise their work as they are learning. Students are assessed on their mastery of the content using tasks, projects and traditional exams.

I created this website to support my students, their parents and my colleagues.  Please visit often and send me a comment. I love to hear from you and will respond as quickly as possible. Feel free to e-mail me at wpetty@carson.k12.nv.us.
