I have been teaching for 17 years now - mostly at the elementary/intermediate levels, but I did have a brief three year stint as a 7th grade English teacher. I am also a Reading Specialist, but currently working as a Math Specialist. My passion is teaching math, but I have lots of great reading ideas as well!
I believe engaging activities will allow students to achieve to their fullest potential in both reading and math. For math content, my teaching style involves hands-on, engaging activities with an emphasis on being able to explain your answer through verbal or written explaination. I feel this is imperative in math instruction. I use a lot of mathematical tasks that involve problem solving, and encourage my students to find their answer however it is easiest for them.
I earned a Bachelor's Degree and Master's degree in which I received highest honors.
B.S. IN ELEMENTARY EDUCATION M.A. READING SPECIALIST I CONTINUE EARNING COLLEGE CREDITS MATHEMATICS AND MATHEMATICS PEDAGOGY. CURRENTLY I HAVE AN ADDITIONAL 19 CREDITS ABOVE MY MASTER'S DEGREE IN THESE AREAS.
