Hello everyone! My name is Ms. Pimentel and I am so excited to be teaching at Braswell High School. This is my 5th year teaching all together. I will be teaching Pre-AP Geometry and Algebra 2.
We will be using Google classroom, so I expect all students to bring their technology devices on the first day of school. I have different classes on Google classroom for different periods, so during the first week of school I will be helping students set up and enroll into Google classroom. An access code will be needed for students to access the Google classroom and this will be provided on the first day of school.

I am originally from Brooklyn, NYC and went to school in Burlington, Vermont. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher and math was always my favorite subject. It just clicked for me and I love that moment when I can witness my students having those "ahhhhh" moments. I am extremely passionate about education because I am a first generation college graduate in my family. After college, I joined Teach for America and was placed to teach in Dallas, Texas. I taught my first two years at James Madison High School for Dallas ISD, and then the following year I enrolled in Grad school and taught for Lewisville ISD. And now, I am entering my fourth year in mathematics education at Braswell High School and I am so excited about this transition and hope to make Braswell my new teaching home.
I have two amazing dogs, Miah (black lab) and Cruz (chihuahua) and love to go on long walks with them. I enjoy cooking, going for a run, listening to music, watching sports on television, and spending time with family and friends. I am an older sister to a 1 year old little brother who I adore with all of my heart. I love going to new places and would love to travel one day in the future.
