Mrs. Freeman has been teaching math at MBMS since 2014. Prior to teaching, she was a human factors engineer and quality analyst for AT&T. In the classroom, she teaches using things you can hold (spheres, tubes, Hot Wheels) and through teaching with root words and analogies! She has been known to teach math using literature from A. A. Milne to Edgar Allan Poe. She also incorporates state-of-the-art technology into teaching algebraic and geometric concepts.
Mrs. Freeman is an Oconee County native and stills lives on the farm she has called home since she was two. She and her husband Stan have two adult boys, John and Matthew. She is a graduate of OCHS when there were still only three total schools in the county. The family enjoys walking the trails behind their home with their shelter dog, Anna. The Freemans love to escape to national parks. Glacier National Park in Montana has been their favorite escape, but Banff in Alberta, Canada is a close second. Each year they add to the list, but 2020, of course, has been an exception.
If your children are in Mrs. Freeman’s classroom for math, please know that they will be loved for who they are. Math is the subject that causes the most anxiety for students so it’s critical to have a fun and caring classroom. Your children are very important young people! She will also push them to learn as much as they can possibly learn. They will know very soon that they are adored and they will be challenged as she has high expectations for learning. Those things co-exist very nicely in her classroom!
