About Me

  • by

Hello! My name is Ann. I chose the name math nana because family is everything to me and I absolutely love math. I’m a retired math teacher who worked two years at the high school level, got a masters in math education, worked 23 years in middle school teaching 7th grade math, and then just for fun spent my last semester before retirement at the high school level. I really enjoyed doing higher level math again that semester. I have the best husband ever even though we are polar opposites. Kent, my husband works across the street, at the family golf course. I am mother to two amazing daughters and one terrific son. They have awesome spouses who are my children also. I have nine wonderful grandchildren, five girls and four boys, who call me nana. Their ages span from a college graduate (so proud!) to an almost one year old. I have a sister who is my best friend and two brothers. My parents are both deceased.
