I have been an educator for 8+ years with 6+ years in the New York City Public School system. I teach middle and high school math and science. I have also taught journalism. I am currently teaching to at-risk students who are behind several grade levels in their math and science skills. Before I was a teacher, I was a writer and editor for two national textbook companies.
Not only do students differ in their math and science skill levels, but they also have different learning styles, so I try to incorporate different activities into my lessons so that no student feels neglected. I try to incorporate reading activities, hands-on learning, group activities and other strategies where appropriate.
I am proud to have earned degrees and graduate certificates from four different universities. I am a member of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and the Association of Mathematics Teachers of New York State (AMTNYS).
