Mrs. Carrie Cummings
Hello! Welcome to my Algebra 1/Algebraic Reasoning homepage!
I am originally from Austin, TX, and lived there from birth through my graduation from the University of Texas. I received my BA in English, and worked at the University of Texas Alumni Center for a few years. I actually began teaching as a substitute teacher at a DAEP program in Conroe. I discovered that I had a passion for teaching students who struggle in school, whether the struggle be academic, behavioral, or just circumstantial. I also discovered that teaching MATH was a passion, and that I could use my English degree to help figure out the best way to explain a math problem to a math-resistant student. I have now been teaching high school math for 12 years, and can't envision doing anything else. I came to Pearland ISD to teach at ALA, the discipline campus for Pearland ISD, and taught all of the math courses PISD offers for 7 years, and I am now thrillled to be a Dawson Eagle!
I am married to my husband, Scott, who is a local pastor, and we have three children: Jake, who is 15 and a sophomore at Dawson, Ben, who is 12 and a 7th grader at Berry Miller, and Caroline, who is 8 and a 3rd grader at Silverlake.
Tutorial Schedule: I am available for tutorials on Monday/Wednesday mornings, and Tuesday/Thursday afternoons. Please take advantage of these times as the best way to receive extra help/assistance from me.
