Kansas Teacher of the Year 2013 Pamela Dombrowski USD 475 – Geary County Fort Riley Middle School 6 th and 7 th Grade Math Every child has the potential to learn...I believe every student can achieve success in mathematics with the proper guidance, instruction, challenge and motivation. I enjoy showing parents and students there are many ways to solve a problem, they just need to figure out what works for them.
