For four years at a junior high school I taught 7th grade math, 8th grade math, general math for 9th graders and Algebra I. During 26 years of teaching at the same high school I taught every course that was offered, from Pre-Algebra through calculus. I loved being a classroom teacher, and now I enjoy helping teachers and students achieve their goals.
