TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught at Parkland Magnet High School (where excellence happens!) in North Carolina for four years before having my son and becoming a stay at home mom. I am slowly but surely adding all of my lessons to my store, so feel free to message me if you have any questions about other lessons I may have, particularly for IB Math. The classes I have taught include Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Advanced Functions & Modeling, IB Math SL 1, and IB Math SL 2.

MY TEACHING STYLE

As you can tell from looking at my products, I am a big fan of guided notes! I think that these make my life as a teacher easier and keep the students more focused. I also love making math fun and interactive, so either during or after the guided notes I like to do some type of activity to practice and reinforce what the students just learned. I like to do this through songs, games, and competitions in class. Games include Dominoes, Matho (Bingo), Around the World, eInstruction CPS lessons and more. Many of these activities bring smiles to students' faces and offer the opportunity for student collaboration.
