TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My educational background is in psychology, mathematics, and mathematics education.I spent most of my career teaching at Florida State University School in Tallahassee, Florida (mathematics and statistics). Most recently, I held a position at a research center at Florida State University working on various projects involving K - 12 mathematics teaching. In my recent position, I had the opportunity to extend my expertise by exploring the elementary geometry standards and writing related resources. I am now retired but would like to share lessons I developed with others. Over the years, I taught 7th and 8th grade math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus, Geometry, and Statistics (and I haven't thrown anything away!). If you have a particular request for a lesson or exercise, please ask. I may have just want you are looking for. :)
