TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a seasoned teacher with over 40 years of successful teaching in the public schools. I do a lot of teacher in-servicing in the areas of reading, writing, and math. Recently I am a mathmaniac, creating a sequel to Crossmatics, which is out of print now. I love teaching math, making concepts concrete and infusing thinking strategies. My State test scores are very impressive, with most of my students exceeding math standards. I am now in the process of renewing my National Certification, which expires in 2013.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Beginning with what students know, I "hook" on new learning through concrete, visual teaching that enables students to see concepts. I believe that classroom management is all about relationships in the classroom and work towards helping students keep and make friends in class. Hence, the classroom is an inviting, happy place. Because I view math as a platform to teach students how to think (not what to think), my approach focuses on facilitating the thinking process: seeing relationships between and among concepts and ideas; applying, adapting, and extending new learnings through problem-solving; and self-reflecting/evaluat-ing. I believe in students and their ability to stretch their thinking. Hence, I offer a rigorous curriculum that raises the bar for performances. While many teachers are concerned about having their students MEET state standards, I focus on having them EXCEED math standards -- and they have and do. Each year they teach me how smart they are and that there is no limit to what they can do. As I learn more, I find that they do too. Hence, the better a teacher I become, the better students they become also. I am far passed the retirement age - but I just love to teach.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Received my National Certification in 2003 and help teacher-candidates through this rigorous and demanding process.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

After my post Bache laureate work in elementary education,I taught in the public schools; served as a Resource Teacher in Language Arts for the Central Oahu District for about five years; taught two "college" reading courses for our state university; was a Summer Fellow for the Hawaii Writing Project and demonstrated exemplary writing lessons to teachers; mentored over 40 student teachers; attended the Intensive Training session in San Francisco in Singapore Math; taught workshops in math strategies to various schools; presented mini-workshops on a Singapore Math strategy (Model-Drawing)at our state Council of Teachers of Mathematics (HCTM). At the school level, I served as chairperson of our Language Arts Committee for many years, but for the past seven years, am a Co-Chair of our Math Committee, helping our teachers develop their math content and pedagogy.
