Welcome to 7-Red Math. My name is Cynthia Harnew, and I am currently enjoying my 22nd year here in D33 - - it has gone by amazingly fast! I have my Bachelors' degree from MacMurray College and a Masters' from NIU. In my free time I enjoy cooking, reading, camping, my pets, and my kayak (aka the big banana). I also work part-time a few months out of the year for a theater group, finding props and assistant stage managing. I am a pretty good cook because I practice. I am a good reader because I have practiced. I am good at putting up and taking down my tent because I have practiced. I am getting better at kayaking because I keep practicing. I am good at math because I have practiced. Homework assignments = practice. If students want to be successful on tests and quizzes, they will need to practice too!
