Total years of teaching experience is 22 years. I taught 4th grade for many years, then moved to middle school to focus on math at the 6th grade level. I have tutored, developed material, researched summer learning loss issues, developed learning games and I have worked on curriculum. I have done math consulting in other districts, and I have been a cooperating teacher for the student teacher program and building mentor for a number of brand new teachers.
In middle school, time constraints require a very structured routine in order to accomplish the days' plans. Within this structure, I enjoy the students, I like to have fun with them with lots of real life examples and lots of participation.
