I have taught grades 8 through 12 for 24 years in the Central Florida area. I consider it an honor to share strategies with colleagues through local and national math conferences. I am now a full-time teacher-author and love writing curriculum for other teachers.
My friends say that I am way too energetic. I love hands-on strategies that engage students to learn cooperatively. There is always something new happening in my classroom.
