Three years in a middle school setting, one year as a middle school & high school teacher. Currently teaching Algebra II Honors and AP Statistics.
My teaching style involves a lot of manipulatives to encourage student movement and a deeper conceptual understanding to improve overall fluency. I also believe that teaching more than more topic at once (for example, adding two negatives and adding a negative and a positive) will create a higher rate of student failure. A lot of my products are single topic and I will rarely post review sheets.

I've taught in high risk zones for potential drop outs. A lot of my work is modified and/or differentiated to accommodate IEPs or gaps in early educational math fluency.
