As a 15+ year veteran of middle school math education, I love ideas and opportunities for children to see what great mathematicians they are! I design products that will give children practice and guidance in how to improve through assistance from their educators. I also look to share ideas that make the other part of teaching (paperwork, emailing, grading) easier so that I can focus on teaching and learning.
I prefer inquiry based, real world application problems, but I also understand that our children need practice with certain skills to be successful in inquiry based environments.
My students love me and hate it when I'm fair and holding them accountable. I consider this the highest award from middle school children.
I hold an BS in Math and a M.Ed in Curriculum and Technology.
I have a husband and three children of my own. I've always wanted to be a teacher and to touch the lives of children around the world is my dream.
