Hello fellow teachers! I am currently an 8th grade Math teacher in a middle school in central Illinois. I have always loved TPT and turned here when I was stuck. As I was working on some of my creative notes, a coworker mentioned to me that I should share these on TPT. That has brought me here! I have begun uploading some of my doodle notes that I use in my classroom as well as some of the interactive lessons and activities I use with my students. While all of these things are not perfect, I hope that I can share what I do and inspire others!
I have been teaching 8th grade in a middle school for a few years and I do my best to make math interesting and engaging for all students. I want students to feel successful and engaged every day they are with me.
