TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a middle school teacher in my 14th year of teaching. I have taught 7th and 8th grade math, Algebra, and Geometry, but my first love is Algebra.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is active, hands-on, and creative. I like groupwork, projects, games, and thinking activities. I am probably most noted for my "foldables". I love making Note-taking interactive, colorful, and useful.
