I'm going on five years of teaching experience, all of which have been dedicated to teaching algebra students and preparing them for the Florida Algebra End of Course (EOC) Exam. I have access to a lot of resources and now I'm creating more on my own so students have access to more practice in preparation for the test, especially with the new challenges of the Common Core State Standards. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this test, it is an end of course pass/fail test (that mostly consists of word problems) that also counts for 30% of the students' total grade in the course. It is now going to be made by AIR in Florida, which is much more rigorous and open-ended than we have seen in standardized testing before. From here on out anything I add will be written in this new format.
I LOVE using my Smartboard and other technologies to help my students. I have a Youtube channel (AlgebraBTHS) dedicated to working out example problems to help them. I regularly use edmodo.com with my students as well to give them access to any information they need for extra help.
I was chosen by a student honored for her positive impact in her community as her mentor and was privileged to attend a banquet in our honor. I have also been chosen to be part of my school's AVID Site team. It's a huge honor and I absolutely love this program!
Florida State University graduate; I currently work at the high school I graduated from.
