About Ms. Ibbotson

This is my seventh year back into the regular classroom since retiring 
from JeffCo in 2012.  I have taught for 28 years, everything from 4th 
grade science, Texas history, social studies, advanced algebra, 6th, 7th, 8th grade math, as well as remedial math.  I earned my bachelor's degree in mathematics from the University of Northern Colorado in 1993 and 
followed up with my master's degree in mathematics in 1997.  I enjoy 
working with middle school students and I am grateful for the 
opportunity to share my love of math with them.  I encourage 
students to discover ways math can be used in the real world.
incorporate technology and hands-on projects to engage students in 
the understanding and application of various concepts.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my three children and our 
dog:  Katelin:  22, Kayley: 18, and David: 17, and Lotus: 4.  I enjoy reading, playing indoor and outdoor soccer, volleyball, basketball, and my son and I are training for our seventh triathlon as a mother/son team.
