TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I just recently retired from 34 years of teaching primarily 4th, 5th and middle school math. I am a Disney Teacher Honoree, the first Microsoft Worldwide Innovative Teacher, Intel Innovative Teacher, JASON Project Teacher Argonaut, to name a few awards. I most recently served as an Academic Achievement Specialist for my district, assisting teachers with implementation of Common Core Math. I've mostly taught fourth grade but over the course of my career, I've also taught fifth and sixth grades, first grade, middle school math, at-risk high schoolers, journalism and computers. I love creating teaching materials and have shared with other teachers for the past 13 years through my classroom website. Peek at my website or my blog, Mrs. Renz' Fourth Grade Class, to see my work. www.mrsrenz.net www.mrsrenzclass.blogspot.com

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a projects-based kind of teacher and connect standards to students' lives so they gain deeper understanding and enjoy learning. I LOVE teaching math and my goal is to integrate technology as much as possible. Using technology helps me differentiate for my students and meet the standards at the same time. In the classroom, I use my SMART board all day long and strive to connect each lesson with everyday life. I teach all students as if they are talented and gifted and challenge them to think critically. I LOVE my job!
