TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Over the last 28 years, I have had the opportunity to not only teach mathematics, but also implement my love of technology within the classroom in a variety of ways. By the 1990’s, I was teaching various levels of middle school mathematics, and I had created my first classroom website.

By the early 2000's, my career goals focused on perfecting my teaching techniques within the mathematics classroom. It was during this time that I concentrated on writing grants and participating in programs that promoted the integration of math and science, encouraged differentiated instruction within the classroom, and fostered inquiry based learning techniques.

During the 2011-12 school year, I transferred to the high school where I was immediately given the responsibility of teaching all of the upper level mathematics classes within our high school. By the end of 2012, I had received my AP certification for Calculus AB and the ACP Calculus certification through Indiana University.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My classroom is set-up to allow me to implement four elements of effective math instruction (Systematic and Explicit Sequencing, Self-instruction Opportunities, Peer Tutoring Environments, and Visual Representation Resources) in a blended learning environment. But, as you know, math instruction has intricacies and nuances all its own, so the idea of choosing the “best blended learning model” for my math classroom is a very tricky process. My goal is to meet every student’s math learning needs by creating a perfect connection between online and offline learning tools. My hope is that, by implementing the most effective math instructional techniques with the best blended learning models, my classroom environment will provide students with a math class where they will no longer fear that “dreaded math class” which they are required to take. Children are born with an ability to appreciate “numerosity”. When teachers can utilize this natural ability and create the perfect learning environment, students excel in mathematics!
