TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I currently teach mathematics at Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta Georgia. I have been teaching middle school for four years. I have taught high school mathematics for seven years and was department chair. I was an elementary mathematics coach for three years. For three years, I also taught mathematics online as a undergraduate professor and designed mathematics curriculum for two online schools. I am the 2013 PRESIDENTIAL MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE AWARD WINNER for the state of Georgia! :)

MY TEACHING STYLE

It is my goal to do whatever possible to help students develop analytical thinking abilities with a style that is both effective and fun, and dispel the fear that is commonly associated with mathematics.
