TEACHING EXPERIENCE

After teaching mathematics for 30 years, I retired and did math consulting. I worked with elementary teachers, middle school teachers and high school teachers.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Keep students engaged. Use hands-on activities. Place students in groups to perform a task and learn from their peers. Use appropriate technology.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

For four years at a junior high school I taught 7th grade math, 8th grade math, general math for 9th graders and Algebra I. During 26 years of teaching at the same high school I taught every course that was offered, from Pre-Algebra through calculus. I loved being a classroom teacher, and now I enjoy helping teachers and students achieve their goals.
