TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am Paula Prosper. I taught Technology for five years at the Kindergarten through 6th-grade levels at a McLean, Virginia Montessori school. I developed all aspects of the the program, curriculum, and content from the ground up. I taught High School Math for six years at an Arlington County, Virginia public school back in the 1990s. I'm now back in the math classroom at a Fairfax County, Virginia middle school. From the fall of 2013 until the summer of 2016, my family and I lived and traveled on our 43-foot sailboat. During that time I home-schooled my two teenagers.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I specialize in creating technology lessons with easy-to-understand and detailed step-by-step instructions. These are utilized for either direct-instruction lessons or as written/visual materials for the student.

My article, The Ultimate Going Out, is published in the Summer 2015 issue of Montessori Life. Another article, called Close Family Still on the Go, was published in Vero's Voice in May 2016.
