My name is Janet (Jan) McIntosh and I love teaching at Hawthorn Academy. I worked for 9 years as a civil designer for a local Engineering firm where I have used math in a variety of ways. I enjoy helping others see the practical ways we use math every day and the importance of learning mathematical concepts. I have two grown children and a grandson who was born on Pi day (How awesome is that for a math teacher)! I love the mental challenge of puzzles and the physical challenge of golf and tennis. One of my favorite vacation places is Mexico when it is winter in Utah.
