TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been an educator for 9+ years in the New York City Public School system. I teach middle and high school math and science. I have also taught journalism. Before I was a teacher, I was a writer and editor for two national textbook companies.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Not only do students differ in their math and science skill levels, but they also have different learning styles, so I try to incorporate different activities into my lessons so that no student feels neglected. I try to incorporate reading activities, hands-on learning, group activities and other strategies where appropriate.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

In November 2013 I earned my National Board of Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) Certification in Early Adolescent Mathematics. Also in 2013, I was accepted as a Math for America (MfA) Master Teacher. I am a member of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), the Association of Mathematics Teachers of New York State (AMTNYS), and Phi Delta Kappa International.
