TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm going into my fifth year in the classroom, and I can't wait for another fabulous year with my 5th and 6th graders. I returned to classroom after three years in the finance world, and couldn't be happier with the choice. Using my B.S. in Finance from University of Maryland University College, my Masters in the Art of Teaching (M.A.T) from Trinity University, has been extremely helpful in teaching math to my students. I'm able to incorporate real-life experiences and business people into the classroom to help students make the connections to the outside world.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have a combined style of teaching. My student population have a variety of learning styles, so Im constantly changing my style to suit their need. My goal is to educate them using a variety of methods like: Demonstrator - I push for my students to take some responsibility for learning what they need to know and for asking for help when they don't understand something. Facilitator - I try to design learning situations/activities that require student processing and application of what is being taught in creative ways (peer-to peer).

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I am a Highly Qualified Teacher in the state of Maryland, and the District of Columbia. I also hold an Advanced Professional Certificate from the Maryland State Department of Education.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have an Associates in Accounting from Prince George's Community College, a B.S. in Finance from University of Maryland University College, and a Masters in the Art of Teaching (M.A.T) from Trinity University in Washington DC.
