TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am about to start my 6th year of teaching. All 6 years have been completed in San Antonio, TX so my products are geared more towards the TEKS than common core, although Math is Math! I have taught 6th grade, 7th grade, 8th grade, GT Algebra 1, and then Intervention classes as well. I love the middle school level and can't picture myself teaching any other grade level.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Build rapport, respect, and include humor and creativity as often as possible.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from the Judson District, spent 2 years at San Antonio College to stay in town, and then commuted to Texas State University to complete my degree in 4-8 Math. I was a true school and math nerd.

Visit our website at www.catnipswordwalls.com. I am 27 years old, and grew up with a passion for Art and Math. When we were instructed to display Word Walls in our classrooms 5 years ago, I began making them for myself as an excuse to do something artsy. As I switched grade levels, I added more words until I ended up with an almost perfect comprehensive middle school math word wall set. Now I am branching out to other grade levels and maybe one day, other subjects.
