I have been teaching high school math for over ten years. I've taught everything from PreAlgebra to PreCalculus, with an emphasis on Algebra 2 and PreCalculus. Being a teacher is the best job in the world and I can't imagine doing anything else!
My teaching style is very focused on student discourse. My students lead a majority of the conversations/lessons and concepts are tackled by the students with conjectures shared with the class. It's a very collaborative environment.
Currently the head of the math dept at my high school.
I have a BS in Mathematics from Linfield College and a Masters in Education from Pacific University in Oregon.
Math can be so much fun! We should expect to have fun with it - not expect to be tortured by it!
