TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching mathematics for over 30 years in High School and College. My subjects are Algebra through Calculus 3 along with Geometry, Trig, and Statistics.
**I have taught ALL the courses for which I post resources in my store. My lessons and activities come from experience.**
I teach in a dual enrollment program and in preparing my students for upper division college, I emphasize quality and hard work. Not to say we don't have a lot of fun in my classes, but I want them to consider these classes as higher education. My school is considered a bridge. My calculus classes, Calculus 1, 2, and 3 have been accepted for credit at MIT, where I had to submit exams, and class materials for approval.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Discovery with Technology, and activity-based learning with a bit of humor. I enjoy trying new techniques and sharing the ones that work. I strive to make math fun for my students and I love using hands on activities.
