I've taught high school and middle school mathematics in many settings: public, private, urban, suburban, and rural. I have also worked in an instructional and editorial capacity for Pearson Education. I've benefited from the leadership of some extraordinary mentors throughout my career and I look forward to sharing my expertise with you.
Mathematics has wonderful depth and intrigue. I find that cooperative learning, performance tasks, writing, and exploration are all wonderful tools for driving the content to a place where synthesis and analysis can happen. I strive to identify and explore big ideas and essential questions in all topics.
My original classroom materials have received accolades from my colleagues, students, and parents wherever I go.

Hi everyone! I am relatively new to TpT and am loving the creative outlet and peer review that it provides me. Your feedback and comments are immensely useful and welcomed. I hope my materials are helpful to you. In general, I submit items in a non-editable pdf format. Please contact me if you would like something edited for a specific purpose. I'm happy to oblige on an individual basis.
