TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching math and science to middle school students for that past four years and I could not imagine doing anything different. My minor is in science, however my passions is in teaching math. I have taught 5th, 6th, 7th, and 9th grade math curriculum. I have attended developmental classes on RTI, ESS, Autism, Irlene syndrome, and much more. I believe if I can take all methods of teaching that I can hopefully reach every student in the classroom using different methods. That is about as much as my "certified" experience goes. However, I truly believe I have learned so much more important lessons and experiences in the classroom with my students.I know these lessons all have taught me much more valuable experiences than any book could ever teach. For example, do not push a 1 inch pencil into an electric pencil sharpener because it will get stuck, If you open a can of soda in the classroom it.... will.... spill, how to dab appropriately, and allow an extra 3 minutes for ruler sword fights during measurement lessons.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I absolutely love what I do! I could not imagine doing anything else. My passion is teaching math, I believe that purple math can become easy with the right teacher and the right practice. I call my hard to understand math "purple" because I once read an e-card that contained a math problem that read "If you have 4 pencils and I have 7 apples then how many pancakes can fit on the roof? Purple because aliens don’t wear hats" I loved this because I totally remember feeling this way a few times through my education. I understand that many days different students feel this way in math and feel the answer is purple because they absolutely have no idea. So if I can understand that every student struggles no matter who they are then I can become a resource rather than just a facilitator of information. I offer small group and differentiation to all students according to each student's ability to complete that specific concept that day. I believe this changes from day to day one student will master a concept one day and struggle on the next. keeping this in mind I never quit trying to lift math off the page and try new things within the classroom. I thought I would give this whole TPT thing a try hopefully to share and find new ideas/better ways to teach!
