TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching since 1990. I taught elementary school in Howard County, Maryland between 1990 and 1997. Then I took off 13 years to raise my three boys. While I was "off work," I did private tutoring and found that I recognized myself and in a lot of my middle school aged students who were struggling in mathematics. As I did at the same age, my students felt like they just "couldn't do math." They felt that they "weren't smart enough." They stated that they "just don't get it." So, I made it my mission to teach math in a way that these students could "get it," could see that they are "smart enough," and know that they "could do math!"

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is one of using the various senses, using a variety of manipulatives, utilizing the math practice of modeling in order to allow all students to be exposed to a variety of different approaches to a math problem or situation.
