Hello! My name is Jamie Chaney. I used to be Jamie Donahue but I got married on December 18, 2015 to an amazing guy, Phillip Chaney. We just celebrated our one year anniversary and recently bought our first home together!
A major piece of my life is the fact that I am a huge Louisville Cardinals fan. I especially love basketball season and am excited to attend many games with my husband.
I don't have a whole lot of hobbies, but another one of my favorite things in the world right now is watching the Walking Dead. My love for this also extends into the classroom as I use several zombie themed lessons with my students. :) Apparently I talk about zombies too much because one of my students gifted me this zombie pen holder as a Christmas present.
I graduated from WKU in 2014 and this is actually my second semester for my Master's Degree. It is my third year being an 8th Grade Math Teacher in Vine Grove, Kentucky and I absolutely love all of my kiddos.
Math is my passion and I am always searching for new ways to incorporate technology into my class lessons and activities. My students may call me weird for loving math so much, but my goal each year is to show those kids who hate math how exciting it can actually be.
On a final note..
My favorite teacher quote is the following:
“Tell me and I forget, Teach me and I remember, Involve me and I learn.”
I look forward to seeing what this class has in store!
