Welcome to Math!

Hi! My name is Ms. Dorinski, and I am very excited to be your teacher! I am looking forward to a year of learning, fun and adventure! I can't wait to learn about all of you, but first I'll tell you a little about me.


First, I am a native Arizonan (very few of us out there). I went to college at Mesa Community College, ASU (go Devils!!) and University of Phoenix where I earned my Bachelor's degree in Business Management and earned my Master's of Secondary Education. Currently, I am enrolled in the Master's of Education/Administration and Supervision program in the hopes of becoming a principal one day. I have been teaching various levels of mathematics for 13 years in various districts and was a paraeducator in Scottsdale for 2 years. I live in Gilbert with my daughter and cats.


There is so much that I am looking forward to this year! Some of the topics we study in the Trigonometry class are: Conic Sections, the Unit Circle, Exponential and Logarithmic Functions, and Rational Functions. My favorite is the Unit Circle.
