TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am an experienced educator in Columbus, Ohio. My experience is primarily working in high-need schools where student engagement and literacy are a great need. To compensate, I have worked to create math projects and activities that are both mathematically rigorous and engaging the students. In my experience I often felt the concepts were lost when I taught other activities that were meant to engage. The foundational of my work is a hefty dose of mathematical rigor. In addition to teaching, I also have served as an assistant high school administration and an elementary school principal.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Student engagement by any means necessary. I have taught at an innovative STEM school (where I also served as 9th Grade Curriculum Coordinator) and an International High School (where I serve as Seminar Coordinator), both of which promote cross-curricular collaboration, project-based, inquiry learning.
