This is my 10th year teaching 5th grade Math in Texas public schools. Some of these years I have also taught Science and/or Social Studies. Nine of the ten years I have taught in Title 1 schools and every year my students have excelled on both the STAAR or the TAKS test. At the end of my first year, the Principal said, "We haven't seen Math scores this high in a long, long time." My Science test scores were similar.
I strive to teach to every learning style. I combine visuals, manipulatives, activities, games, drawing, etc. My philosophy is that if a child does not understand a concept, I need to try a different method of explaining the concept to that child.
One of my recent schools achieved the Exemplary rating for seven consecutive years.
I worked as a Minister for twelve years directing the Educational aspects of two different Christian churches. Both church communities experienced substantial growth during my tenure. Years later, I joined the corporate world for fifteen years, responsible for training employees in best practices concerning servicing customers and safety concerns. During my last year with this company, our location was recognized as "Branch of the Year".
