TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for eight years in various settings. I have taught in large public high schools and small parochial schools. Having worked with various ability levels from students not meeting standards to advanced students, I have developed materials at all levels.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is student-centered. I believe that my role is to facilitate learning by providing materials to help students discover the mathematical truths in our world. I want to encourage my students to be problem solvers, not just in math, but in all areas of life.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

The greatest joy in teaching has come for me when I know I've made a positive impact on students' lives. I have a few students who have taken the time to write letters of thanks telling me how much they learned in my class and how much they appreciated what I have taught them. Equally rewarding, if not more so, is when a student comes back to me and tells me that she uses what we learned in class all the time! These are the greatest gifts I can give my students and their appreciation is the greatest honor.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

After completing a bachelors in mathematics with a focus on pure mathematics and mathematical theory, I went on to pursue a master's degree in secondary education.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I currently hold a teaching license in both Wisconsin and Illinois in grades 6-12.
