Welcome to the 2019-2020 WSCA school year!!

My name is Gabriela Hight and I am excited to start the 2019-2020 school year! This will be my seventh year teaching Mathematics and my second at Western Sierra. This year, I also have the pleasure of coordinating Middle School ASB!
 
A little bit of history...
After spending several years in the hospitality and horticulture industry, I decided to get my B.A. in Mathematics from CSU Sacramento. While in my upper division classes, my professors helped me realize that teaching mathematics can be a rewarding experience and I finished my education by obtaining my teaching credential from CSUS the following year. From that day forward, showing students why the mathematics worked was more important than just memorizing an algorithm. After doing this for over five years, it has become even more evident that understanding the connections between different concepts goes a longer way towards the mastery of mathematics than anything else.
 
I will be using Google Classroom as a portal for announcements and Power School for grades. Please do not hesitate to email me with any questions or comments. 
 
I am looking forward to a wonderful 2019-20 school year!
