TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been using projects, games, cooperative learning, and interactive activities to teach mathematics at the middle school, high school, and college levels for the last 8 years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I run a highly interactive classroom that promotes student participation and critical thinking. In a typical class period (my class periods are 100 minutes long), I generally limit my speaking time to two-20 minute sessions. These sessions are broken up by class projects, assignments, and explorative activities that engage the students with the material (often in small group settings).
