TEACHING EXPERIENCE

We have been teaching high school math for a combined 29 years (Shari 16 years, Carrie 13 years). We have taught all levels of the following (basic, college prep, and honors/advanced): Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry and a problem solving course.

MY TEACHING STYLE

We are both very laid back teachers who like to have fun and try to instill a love of math into our students. Too often weI have people groan and apologize to us when we tell them we teach high school math. Math to us is a game...a puzzle. It should be fun! So we try to incorporate fun into the classroom as often as possible. We also have learned how important it is to incorporate physical activities into the learning environment. Studies have shown that being physically active while learning increases comprehension and retention of the material. We try to make activities as active as possible.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Carrie has been nominated 4 times for the Golden Apple Teacher Award, and is a Master Teacher and Teacher Leader.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Carrie has a Bachelor's Degree from BGSU in Mathematics Education, a Master's Degree from BGSU in Curriculum and Teaching, and has also obtained her Master Teacher status and Teacher Leader Endorsement. Shari has a Bachelor's Degree from UT in Mathematics Education and a Master's Degree from BGSU in Curriculum and Teaching.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Carrie is a wife and mother of 3 (Aiden age 7, Gracie age 5 and Rylee age 21 months), a fitness enthusiast, and a scrapbooking crazy person! She loves doing fun arts and crafts, and tries to incorporate both fitness and crafting into her math classroom. Shari is a wife and mother of two beautiful red heads (Tyler age 7 and Emily age 4).
