Profile

My name is Jennifer Caldwell and I look forward to being your math instructor this semester.  I have been teaching math for over 20 years and I have a true passion for helping my students reach their goals.

  • I believe that anybody can learn anything with the proper attitude, motivation, and environment.
  • I want my students to know that I am personally invested in their success; I deeply care that they learn and understand.
  • A class day is wasted if you have not learned something new and if we haven’t smiled and laughed together.

Although you may view your math class as simply a stepping-stone towards your degree, I hope you will come to realize that math is applicable in almost every aspect of our lives.  If you keep an open mind and are willing to participate, you will be pleasantly surprised at how your mathematical abilities improve.  

I can't wait to meet you in class!
