These questions ooze rigor! Here students work through real life problems to identify equivalent ratios, compare ratios, apply conversions and graph ratios. There's not much on rate here, but can be used as a strategy to solve some of the problems.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I was the last of my friends to learn that singer Robin Thicke was Alan Thicke’s son, the surprise on my face set them off in raucous laughter (thanks guys). Then I repeated this story to another group of friends and this one girl, all doey eyed wearing an expression of genuine excitement, goes “He is?!” Regularly I experience the feeling that I’m the last to know, but experience has taught me that this is entirely untrue. We learn from each other and are lucky enough to engage within platforms where we can freely exchange content, strategies along with a whole host of other things. If it’s my teaching experience that interests you: 6th Grade Mathematics (2011-current) 4th Grade general content knowledge (2005-2011)

MY TEACHING STYLE

If education were fashion, then it is haute couture that I craft. I’m intense, precise, strange, dramatic, work right up to deadlines, and sometimes pretend to be French all for that moment, that pinnacle of runway enlightenment. Work it.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I’m an outlier, and outliers know all too well that we don’t often get credit or recognition for the work we do, we’re too controversial. Independent study with author and Philosopher Dr. Colin McGinn on the Philosophy of Sound Economics Honors Society - Omricon Delta Epsilon High Honors in Philosophy

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Currently enrolled at Rutger’s University for a Masters in Mathematics Education; Classes in body language with the Nonverbal Group; Children’s book writing and Article writing courses with Gotham Writers Workshop; CELTA certification obtained through the Bell International School located in Warsaw, Poland; undergraduate double degree in Economics and Philosophy through Rutger’s University.
