I'm Ms. Abernethy
2020 - 2021
This will be my 19th year teaching math and my 6th year teaching at James Denman Middle School in the San Francisco Unified School District. I have a BA in Pure Math from the University of California at Berkeley. I am a third-generation STEM graduate from CAL. I obtained my Math Single Subject teaching credential from California State University East Bay. I was on the Denman PTSA Board from 2017- 2020 and would like to invite all parents to attend the PTSA general meetings.
WHY I TEACH
I teach because I enjoy working with young people. I would like to give them access to the same opportunities I had when I was growing up and prepare them well for an increasingly competitive world. I want to help raise expectations and standards for my students who I think are brilliant, amazing, and capable of doing anything!
MORE ABOUT ME
In my spare time, I enjoy growing plants, spending time with family, interior decorating, the beach, cooking, walking in nature, museums, theater performances, and dance classes.
