Tracy Palmer
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from Smith College and I am currently teach 7th grade Mathematics at Kelly Lane Middle School in PISD.  I am enrolled in the Austin Community College Center for Teaching Certification Program.  I have passed the Math #115 4-8 content test  and the PPR EC-12 tests as required by SBEC.  I have been a substitute in the Leander ISD, focusing largely on middle school math in grades 7th & 8th.  Prior to moving to Austin in 2006, I taught Pre-K at the Sunshine Kids Preschool in McKinney, Texas for 3 years.
I have a strong belief that all students are highly capable and that given a safe and positive environment that encourages exploration, they will florish into confident, successful young adults.  I believe that I am an important and significant influence in the lives of the students I teach and that I can make a positive difference in their lives.  I am  seeking  a teaching opportunity that will allow me to infuse students with a love for  learning and to show them the importance of Mathematics in their futures.
