I have eight years of teaching experience at all levels of middle school. I have taught every grade and ability level - from 6th grade Math to Accelerated 9th grade math for 8th graders. I love middle school Math, particularly 8th grade, when students are starting to get into the meat of algebra!
I like to keep my classroom structured and organized, so the students know what to expect when they walk in each day. I also aim to incorporate exploratory activities along with guided practice and critical thinking tasks, so the students have deeper understanding and mastery of the content.
Selected to attend the Gates Foundation's ECET2 Conference: Elevating and Celebrating Effective Teaching and Teachers in San Diego in 2013.
My undergraduate degree was in Marketing, but after a few years in the business world, I realized it was not for me. I found a program where I could obtain my Masters and my teacher certification in the same program. After a challenging 14 months, I started my teaching career and haven't looked back. I earned my Specialist degree in 2011.
