TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching a variety of maths for 7 years now, and it keeps getting better!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love hands on activities, inquiry based learning, and anything that gets my kids moving. I want them to have real world application to any and all assignments we work on. I want them to leave my classroom with questions. I want them to be curious. I want them to want to learn math.
