Ms. Gin - Home

Welcome to my website.  Please use this website to access assignments for all my courses.  You will find all classwork, homework, projects, and any other assignments posted at least a week in advance.  All homework and projects will have a digital copy attached to them so that all students can access the information when they are not at school.  Please feel free to e-mail me at gina1@sfusd.edu if you have questions or comments.


This is my fourteenth year teaching at James Denman Middle School.  When I started at Denman, I taught seventh grade math/science and eighth grade math.  This year I am teaching sixth grade math, science, and coding, and 7th advisory.  In additional to my teaching duties, I am also the sponsor of the Yearbook and Robotics  Clubs and the co-sponsor with Ms. Lyon for the Mathcounts Club.

I grew up in San Francisco and went to Jean Parker Elementary, Marina Middle, and Wallenberg High School.  I have a BA in Psychology and a teaching credential from the University of California, Davis.  I also have a MA in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Educational Technology from the University of Phoenix.

Before I went into teaching, I worked at several non-profits.  I became inspired to teach when I took a course at the local community college about arts and children.  I started my career as an elementary school teacher, but after getting my MA, I decided to try middle school.  I am never going back to elementary.

In my free time, I love to hang out with my family, read, and cook.   I really enjoy being able to curl up with a book and listen to music in the background.  I have a lot of fun trying new recipes and experimenting with old ones. 

Teaching middle school students is the best job in the world!  At Denman, I am able to integrate my passion for learning and teach real world concepts related to science, math, and technology.  I can’t imagine myself doing anything else!
