I have been a math specialist at an elementary school for two years.
"Every child deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best they can possibly be." I believe students learn best from having fun while they learn. Incorporating math games as purposeful practice to the concepts you are teaching them is one of great way to help them solidify the skills they need to succeed.

I am so lucky to have my dream job, I love it more than anything! I enjoy anything related to math and being able to share my passion with my students. I teach math all day long in all of the classroom in my school as well as work with pull out groups for remediation and enrichment. My favorite phrase a student has ever said to me was, "Ms. McGuire, you just brought me to a whole new math world!" I hope in my future years of teaching I can continuously bring students to a WHOLE NEW MATH WORLD! :)
