I am currently in my 8th year of teaching. I am a licensed 6-12 math teacher and a K-8 Math Specialist. I have worked with many levels of children, but mainly middle school. I currently serve as a Math Specialist for my school as well as a resource teacher for grades 5-8 helping them with skills from K-their math level.
I love to teach with games and hands-on activities. Many of my products include games, sorts, and hands-on ways of learning. All of my products have been tested in my classroom, or by a classroom in my school. My teachers help me edit games and come up with ways to make them better before they are placed online.

I attended the College of William and Mary from 2001-2005 and received my B.S. in Mathematics. While there I also attended the W&M School of Education and received my Virginia Teaching License. While teaching at a local school, I continued my education at W&M getting my MA.Ed as a K-8Math Specialist. During that time, I worked full time as a middle school Algebra and Geometry teacher and then later on a grant at W&M as a specialist for inner-city schools who were struggling to make AYP and meet state accreditation.
I have presented at many conferences including VCTM (VA Council for Teachers of Mathematics) and NCTM (National Council for Teachers of Mathematics). I have served as a mentor for many new math teachers as well as lead teacher for my content area and grade level teams. Visit my blog at www.missmathdork.com !
