I started out teaching pre-school at Head Start. My first "official" job was at Mountain Creek Academy, the alternative school, teaching 6,7,and 8th grade math and science. I then moved to Spring Place Elementary and taught sixth and fifth grade math. This is my third year in fifth grade math, and I love it! Math is my passion.
I really believe that hands-on application helps bring home difficult concepts for children and adults alike. Being able to tie the new information to something they already understand helps lock in the concept.I love to incorporate technology into my classroom as well as other innovative techniques. I believe differentiation, when done correctly, really does work. I try to incorporate differentiation into all of my products that I can. It is very easy to differentiate in the classroom with the right resources.
In high school, I won the geometry and algebra 2 awards; I made a 102 in both classes.
