Greetings! I am Mrs. Torrence, the High School Math teacher at PIHS. I am beyond excited to work with your child this school year. This will be my 5th year teaching and my 3rd year with PIHS. I am a graduate of THE Florida A&M University. I aim to push students beyond what they feel they are capable of doing in the classroom. My goal is to mold students into practitioners of math. I also focus on developing and sharpening study habits and note taking skills that students can carry throughout the rest of their education careers.
