I currently have 15 years of classroom experience. My certifications include Elementary Education and Special Education. For the past eight years I have been teaching 6th grade math in a middle school. Before math I taught all core area subjects for sixth, fifth, and fourth grade.
I love teaching! I use a variety of teaching styles in my classroom including direct instruction, guided instruction, exploration lessons, partnering, cooperative group work, neighbor checks, pair shares, carousel activities, stations, centers, and project based learning. When I create power points or flip charts I intend on writing on them and completing problems and notes together with my class. All of my products are used in my classroom before I post them on TpT.
2014 NCMTA Math Teacher of the Year-- Teacher of the Year 2009: awarded by my school district.
I am married and have two beautiful children.
