I started my career over 20 years ago working in a small private school. I then moved a few years later into my current position in a public school teaching 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Mathematics to a bunch of truly awesome kids!
I wasn't the strongest math student myself until I was inspired by a few really terrific teachers! Although I'm a math whiz now, I always try to keep in mind the pitfalls I encountered and my students enjoy learning from my "mistakes." I use a lot of technology in my classroom, not just to make my job easier but to also entice my learners and to provide them with a multitude of tools and avenues for success. While teaching to the state test is what I am asked to do, my true goal is to give my students strong, life-long skills they will own forever. Oh! And I have more fun and laughs on a daily basis than you could ever imagine!
