I have been teaching math for the past 5 years. I have taught 7th grade math, 8th grade math, Algebra 1, and Geometry. I currently teach 8th grade math and Algebra 1 at an academy in south Louisiana.
I am very big on cooperative learning, hands-on activities, and making math fun, but I also believe in doing lots of practice. I also always try to find little tricks to help students remember rules, formulas, and facts.

I graduated from Louisiana State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Fashion Merchandising with a minor in Business Administration. After graduation I set off into the business world only to find my heart not truly in it. Because I didn't truly love what I was doing, I decided to give teaching a try as my father had been a coach, teacher, athletic director, and eventually an administrator. I felt that education may run in my blood, and it turns out it did. I got my certification for teaching and haven't looked back since.
I love teaching. I love interacting with my students and watching them grow with knowledge and maturity. I always try to find a way to build their confidence and make things fun. I hope my products help and allow you to do the same with your students as well.
