TEACHING EXPERIENCE

With over ten years of experience in the math education field, I have a passion for creating visually engaging math activities. I believe that given encouragement and a growth mindset, all students can excel in STEM fields.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I incorporate visual aids, foldables, graphic organizers, and project-based learning into my curriculum. I also use as many real world scenarios as I can think of. :-)
