Meet the Math Nerd

Welcome! My name is Brittany and I am the nerdy math brain behind Mix and Math!  I am currently a 5th grade teacher at a middle school in North Carolina. I graduated from High Point University with a degree in Elementary Education and am now working to complete my M.Ed in Elementary Mathematics at UNC Greensboro. I am married to an amazing educator who inspires me daily and together we are puppy-parents to the most adorable miniature golden doodle, Waldo. I am overly competitive in Minute to Win It challenges, drink more sweet tea than I care to admit, and in another life I would be an aspiring pop-star... singing, rapping, and dancing my way to superstardom!

I started Mix and Math because I am so very passionate about math education! I have had so many students walk into my classroom on the first day of school with negative ideas about their ability in math and the heartbreaking thought that math is boring. I love proving those kiddos wrong! Math is the furthest thing from boring and EVERYONE can learn math! My mission for Mix and Math is to provide teachers with engaging math resources that encourage a love of learning in their students. Mix and Math aims to spark creativity in math teachers and grow their confidence in facilitating high-level math instruction.
