I have been teaching middle school for the past 8 years. Before I became a teacher, I served 5 years in the Army as an avionics technician, then worked for 7 years at Motorola as an Equipment Maintenance Technician fixing machines that make semiconductors. I now teach 7th and 8th grade mathematics and sponsor an after school S.T.E.M. Club.
I love the teaching mathematics using an inquiry based style. I have found that students truly learn when they can connect their own ideas of what they know about mathematics to new concepts and ideas.
I have a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Arizona State University.
