I've been teaching for 13 years and love it! I have taught grades 4-7, with most of my experience is in middle school math. I currently teach 7th grade math.. Terri Feil
I believe in deepening students understanding of mathematical concepts by challenging and supporting every student. My classroom incorporates small group instruction, providing a risk free environment to support and facilitate perseverance in problem solving. Students work independently, in pairs and in groups through tiered activities. I meet with small groups daily to assess, remediate and enrich as appropriate.
