I have been teaching for over ten years, focusing on math for 2-5th graders.
I love to make math engaging through real life applications. Every math topic can usually be taught through projects and problem solving. My goal is for my students to be able to think, collaborate, and communicate. While I don't teach to the test, I cover the Common Core Standards, which I fully support.
