TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught Math 1, Math 2, Honors Math 2, Algebra 2, Foundations of Math 1, Foundations of Math 2, and Honors Discrete Math over my 8 years of teaching.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I'm working on finding a balance between "new" research methods that suggest more activities, more collaboration, more hands-on methods are best and the age-old approach of just good-ol practice. I think it's important to keep students interested, but I honestly believe one of the best ways to get better at math is to practice, practice, practice. With that in mind, I like to use task cards, stations, games, etc. to keep kids practicing without losing their minds looking at another black-n-white worksheet.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

National Board Certification in AYA Mathematics.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I am a National Board Certified teacher with a B.S. in Mathematics Education 9-12 from UNC-Pembroke and an M.A. in Mathematics Education 5-12 from Western Governor's University.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

When I'm not doing math, I'm at home keeping my own two kiddos occupied. When they're in bed I like to research more school stuff (Yes, I'm one of those people!), but I also like to do all manner of crafty things and read.
