I am a 5th year high school teacher who is certified to teach business, math, and economics courses. I have had experience teaching classes within all three disciplines and currently teach both economics and math courses. Because of my diverse qualifications I have taught 12 different courses which has pushed me to always keep my curriculum and teaching strategies fresh. I didn't start out my career in secondary education. I majored in business in college and then became involved in University Graduate Admissions. While working with students I found I loved teaching and went back to school. I have enjoyed my time in education am very glad I made the switch!
I believe all students have something to offer in the classroom. If students feel they are valued they are more likely to succeed. The more we involve students the more they will engage with us, their peers, and the material. I prefer discussion to lecture and try to keep things varied. I like to break class up into segments so students stay on their toes.
