I have taught both Science and Math in the 7th and 8th grades, and I have taught all levels of High School Math, except for Calculus.
I embrace many approaches to teaching, including exploratory groupwork, use of technology, student-centered learning, and Socratic discussion. I believe that reflection on problem solving methods and actively looking for patterns are the key to success in Math.
My recognition comes from the students who tell me that they finally understand math.
Graduated High School with Honors; B.S. in Mathematics and French, LSU; M.Ed., LSU
I have an amazing mom who taught me that it is more important to dwell on the process of problem solving than it is to find the answer.
