I teach 9th grade Algebra in Maryland.
Yet to be added
I have a Bachelor's degree in Nutrition, a Master's and a PhD in Social Welfare & Health Sciences.
After being a dietitian for 16 years, I decided to switch a career and go into education. At first, I thought I would become a science teacher, but due to a greater demand for math teachers, I became a secondary math teacher, currently teaching Algebra 1. Obviously, I couldn’t stay indifferent to my students’ dietary habits during school hours. I made it my goal to create math work that will expose students to some possible healthier choices. If you care about your students’ health and are constantly looking for real life math problems, you have come to the right place. You would be surprised, but I find a lot of similarities between the world of nutrition and the world of math education. In both areas, people tend to believe it’s just about the numbers (or calories), while in reality, it involves analyzing patterns, acquiring skills, and having the right mindset of believing in yourself in order to achieve your goals.
