Greetings mathematicians, my name is Marie Vandecoevering (many of you know me as Marie Fraser). I got married in February and I'm still getting use to the new last name. I graduated from the University of Portland with an Undergraduate degree in Education and got my Masters in Special Education from Concordia University. I lived in Oregon for most of my life but did get to experience the sunny life in San Diego for three years after I graduated college. This is my sixth year teaching and my third year at Holy Cross.

I love teaching math! I think it is such a fascinating subject that we use in our daily life. As a middle school teachers I think it is just as important to teach students life long skills that will help them in high school and also as adults. Teaching math is just part of my job, we also teach organization, time management, how to advocate for yourself, teamwork, and so much more.

Let the learning begin.
