TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a sixth year teacher. I have experience teaching Algebra 1, Algebra 2, STEM, and 7th grade.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to try to incorporate games into my classroom as much as possible. Many students are not particularly fond of mathematics, so I try to make it as fun as possible.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

None

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I am a graduate of Keene State College in Keene, New Hampshire. I have a Bachelors of Science in Secondary Education, a Bachelors of Arts in Mathematics, and a minor in Business Management.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I will always post all of my products free of charge. As a teacher, I love to find activities that I can use in my classroom or ideas that I can tweak to meet the needs of my classroom. Teachers are very busy and do not always have time to reinvent the wheel. So why not share the wealth of resources we have created and help out our colleagues.
