    About Mrs. Hemmerle:

    This is my fifth year teaching at Higley High School.  I have a bachelor’s degree from The University of Arizona in Business Management, and a Master’s Degree from Grand Canyon University in Secondary Education.  I met my husband of ten years at the UofA and we have a four year old son, and a one year old son. 

    I truly enjoy teaching and getting to know my students, and I am looking forward to a great school year!  My philosophy towards teaching is that every student can learn- some people just need a little more time, another approach, or some extra help.  Too often students give up in math because it's challenging.  Vince Lombardi said, "We would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible."   
     

    Here is how you can be successful:


    Expect the challenge to come.  Understanding takes work, but it will come in time.

    Take responsibility for your learning.  You’re the only one who can make you succeed.

    Listen and take notes in class.  Ask questions and write down the examples.   

    Review your notes and do the homework, even if you’re not totally comfortable yet.

    Replace negative messages like “I stink at math,”  “No one in my family is good at math,”  “I’m not smart” with positive messages, like “I get this,” or “I’m ready for this test.”

    If you’re lost, don’t wait.  Come right in and get help so you don’t get behind.

    Give yourself permission to succeed!
