I have 11 years experience as a classroom teacher in grades 6-12 at both public and private schools in Missouri. I spent 2 years as a math consultant and am now serving as an Assistant Principal. I also have experience teaching mathematics at the college level. My pet peeve is teaching students the "tricks" of mathematics before they understand the concept behind the "trick".
I have a student centered approach that includes project based learning and technology integration. I prefer to teach in small chunks with plenty of think time and student investigation. Mathematics is my specialty from middle school up through college.
My awards have been given from my former students who looking back on their elementary/middle school years chose to honor me with a Caring Hands Award and an All-Star Teacher Award.
I have a Bachelor's in Middle School Math Education and am certified in the state of Missouri in mathematics grades 5-12. I hold a Master's in Gifted Education and am certified in the state of Missouri for grades K-12. I hold a second Master's in Educational Administration.
