I have taught math and technology for 33 years in California in a wide range of demographics from inner city schools to small rural schools. In addition, I was hired by Voyager/Cambian to inservice teachers and administrators in math.
Creative-Energetic-Innovative!!! The goal is to engage students so they learn!!!
Teachers from all over would come to observe me teaching math because I utilized cutting-edge technology infused into rigorous curriculum that was both engaging and fun for students. This resulted in the highest percentage of students passing an annual district-wide common final year after year.
I began my career at a Catholic school teaching 4-6 grade students. I was then hired in the public sector to teach math to continuation students. My career lead me to teaching middle school for a short time and finished my career teaching at the high school level. I have 33 years of teaching experience in all.
I have conducted a number of inservice and workshops for teachers who are looking for tried and true ways that engage students in the learning process. I have served on the Brokers of Expertise for the California Dept. of Ed. (CDE), presented at the California League of Middle Schools (CLMS), California League of High Schools (CLHS), Ed Tech (CUE) and in a number of school sites in California, Washington, and Arizona.
