TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching mathematics for 12 years at urban middle and high schools in Michigan. I have taught summer bridge classes, remedial math classes, pre-algebra, algebra 1, algebra 2, pre-calculus, and geometry.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I vary the strategies often so that the lessons reach as many students as possible. Although I use direct instruction for new material, I try to use student discovery and inductive reasoning as much as I can. I try to make learning fun, relevant and rewardingly successful.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Teaching is my third career and is by choice! I have a chemical engineering background, was a patent agent, and, now, am a secondary math teacher. I have a Masters in the Art of Teaching with an emphasis on Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment. Besides my certification in math, I am also certified to teach chemistry, but I have not had the opportunity to do so yet.
