I've been teaching math for 11 years now. For 2 of those years I worked to provide professional development to K-8 teachers in math strategies that could be used across grade levels. Since my return to the classroom I've had great success with the PowerPoint presentations I've developed. In the 2010-2011 school year I had approximately 14% more students score proficient and advanced on our state test compared to the previous year. I love math and I love teaching it in a way that makes sense to students.
Direct instruction followed by guided and independent practice, goal oriented, and focused on academic vocabulary
