TEACHING EXPERIENCE

40+ wonderful years teaching experience.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Teaching math can be an adventure; it's a process of leading students to discover ways to quantify, calculate, measure, and understand. My method is to incorporate fun math projects into the middle school curriculum - projects that are based on adventure themes. They stimulate curiosity and keep the students engaged.
