Author Bio: For Karen Faucett, math is best approached in an orderly fashion. When its logic, rules and procedures are followed and understood, every student can be successful. And when students have a caring teacher like Mrs. Faucett, there is every probability that they will find their own path to the correct answer. Mrs. Faucett’s approach to math begins with a love of its elegance and orderly operations. Her goal is to help students discover their own love for math, along with the satisfaction that comes from finding the correct answer to a variety of problems. Among her most satisfying accomplishments are the times when struggling students discover that they could be successful, and that they could find value in pursuing all their educational opportunities. Mrs. Faucett began her career by teaching math at Jefferson Davis Middle School in Duval County, Florida, where she was named Teacher of the Year in 2001. After eleven years at Jefferson Davis, she taught for an additional two years at Lake Asbury Junior High in Clay County. Prior to teaching, she ran an afterschool program in Duval County. Mrs. Faucett chose to join Florida Virtual School in order to attend to the needs of her three young sons, while continuing to share her love of math with students throughout Florida. Mrs. Faucett earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Education from the University of North Florida.
