Welcome to A Plus teaching Resources! My resources are based on 11 years teaching Kindergarten to Year 6 in in Australian Primary Schools, and 8 Years as a Numeracy Coach & Curriculum Leader. At present I provide professional development, coaching and curriculum leadership for primary teachers and I also get to work alongside teachers with their students in the math classroom!
I take a constructivist, inquiry-based approach to learning. I believe students learn best when they can talk through their understandings and are encouraged to think critically, analyse, synthesise, and evaluate their mathematics, rather than be rote, recall and speed focussed! I love working with teachers and students and enjoy seeing them transform from anxiety and fear ridden 'math haters' into confident, risk taking math lovers!
I attained Level 3 Teacher Status in 2012
