3 years in 4th & 5th Grade Math & Science
I like to make class fun - singing songs and coming up with silly mnemonic devices to remember difficult concepts; bringing out manipulatives and letting the students interact with math through Daily Math Centers.
Shining Teacher Moment: Every year when former students come back to visit me. I love that my students still act like little kids when seeing their Elementary teachers :) It's a good feeling to know that even the toughest of Middle School kids can still melt into a 10 year old when they see their former teachers.
B.S. in Psychology and B.S. in Sociology from Texas A&M with a Teaching Certificate.
I have left the classroom, but I am still avidly involved in education. I tutor struggling learners every week and, when I have free time, I create learning activities that are posted here.
