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 5 years of teaching.
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 & white worksheet.

I graduated with my B.S. in Mathematics Education 9-12 from UNC-Pembroke. I have also earned my M.A. in Mathematics Education 5-12 from Western Governor's University. I am currently working on improving my fluency in Latin American Spanish so I can better help my school's growing population of LEP students.
When I'm not doing math, I'm at home keeping my sweet little girl occupied. When she's 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.
