I have been an elementary teacher for over 25 years and have been a math coach for 16 years! I love helping other teachers and students develop a passion for math by building deep understanding. I've written district curriculum and assessments that are common core aligned, have published a book for grade 1 math teachers, and I can help YOU have success with your students!
Kids construct great strategies for computation and problem solving, but only when they have an amazing teacher to model amazing thinking! Having strong resources that are engaging for kids is an important tool for any great math teacher and I'm here to share. My resources are not just cute - they will help you become a better math teacher!
I have published a book in the Heinemann Math in Practice series, articles for NCTM's Teaching Children Mathematics journal and NCSM's monthly journal as well. I've been a presenter at national NCTM and NCSM conferences. I am a core member of the Elementary Math Specialists & Teacher Leaders project at McDaniel College in Maryland.
I have a BS degree in Early Childhood Education and a Master's degree in Elementary Instruction with a focus in Mathematics.
Besides being an elementary math coach, I am also a MOM of an elementary school age student, which has been a blessing and a challenge during our district's transition to common core aligned standards during the last few years. I am a BIG FAN of common core, but I don't always want to spend my mom-time defending it on the soccer field sidelines (but I have!).
