### Machelle D.

Bio

Hello there! Welcome to my page, and I am so glad you stopped by! My name is Machelle Dodds. I live in North Carolina with my husband and our 13 chickens! Besides tending chickens, I enjoy music, playing piano, and cooking. Now, for all of us chicken lovers, "chicken math" is a real thing, but I'd like to help you learn real math!! I LOVE math, and if you aren't so fond of math, that's okay!! I would love to help you do even better in math than you think you can. My goal is to keep learning as simple as possible. I think students learn best when concepts are simplified. I believe assisted practice is the key to learning math concepts. My aim here is growth and not perfection! Let's excel at MATH together: Motivation, Attitude, Tenacity, & Honesty! Mutually Accomplished Teamwork from Hard work! Join me and let me know...which MATH acronym do you like better?
