I have been teaching for 4 years now. I am currently both a Primary Math Lead in my school as well as a Team Lead for my grade level (1st). Teaching is truly my passion and I have a major focus on number sense through number talks and other routines and games that build on mental math and a deeper understanding of numbers and how they relate to one another. I work closely with my math resource teacher as well as our Math Solutions Specialist. If you are looking for a fun math game to incorporate into your lesson or a task please don't hesitate to ask - I'd be more than happy to create a game upon request if possible! **I have just recently moved to PA to teach 2nd grade. I am ready and excited for this new adventure and cannot wait to see what it brings!
If I had to sum up my style on a few words I would definitely include Responsive Classroom and Family on my list.
"Sometimes I drop off the face of the earth. To others I am missing, to myself I have merely been found."
I graduated with my Masters in Education in 2012.
