I’m Rachel, a wife and mother of four precious little ones.
I have twins (a boy and girl) born in October of 2016, a boy born in August 2011, and my firstborn boy was born February 2010. If you are figuring out the math, I had a three-year-old and a two-year-old when the twins were born. It was a tough year, but they are all slowly becoming more independent and life is definitely easier.
I was a public school teacher in 4th and 5th grade for 12 years, and after the twins were born I began staying home. I now have the privilege of homeschooling my kiddos, and this blog shares many of the math activities we are doing together. Upper elementary children still have my heart, so even though my children aren’t old enough to be multiplying fractions those type of activities can be found here too.
“You’ve Got This Math” is also a page to bring hope in times of discouragement, but also celebrate the joys we have in life too.
I firmly believe what John 15:5 says.
I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in me–and I in him–bears much fruit because apart from me you can accomplish nothing.
Some of the posts will focus on what I’m learning spiritually and how only through Our Savior are we truly able to “Get this.”
I hope you will join me in this journey, and I look forward to sharing it with you.
