Just finished my 6th year of teaching math at the middle school level. I have taught a combination of pre-algebra, Algebra I, and a core extension class called Math Enrichment.
I love student-centered activities and I'm working every day to improve my differentiation skills.

I attended Emporia State University in Emporia, Kansas from 2003-2007. I graduated with a BSE in middle school mathematics and journalism. I hope to start my masters in Instructional Design and Technology in the summer of 2011 :)
I think it's always important to thank the people that got you to where you are... Mary Wolfe (4th grade), Jennifer Hanson (journalism), Ryan Burrows (HS LA and Scholar's Bowl), Ron Morrill (JH math), Brock Wenciker (HS math), and my mom (JH/HS librarian). Without teachers like these, I wouldn't be half the teacher I am today.
