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.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

National Board Certified Teacher, Teacher of the Year 2010. ICTCM Innovation in Technology in Education Award Certified "Teachers Teaching with Technology" Texas Instruments Calculator Instructor. I have spoken professionally at Mathematics Conferences worldwide including China and France about effective teaching of mathematics with Technology Enhancements.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BS and MA in Mathematics plus over 24 graduate hours in Educational Technology.

I have taught in Rhode Island, Illinois, Florida and Online. I was the VP of Education for a Mathematics Software company for over two years. I am also an inventor with a patent and trademark.
