I have been a 6th grade teacher in Texas for 6 years.
I love imparting skills on my students that can be used across multiple disciplines. We do a lot of logic puzzles in my class and students love them! They don't realize how much they're learning. I also love bringing in anything creative. Kids aren't going to learn well if they hate the subject, so I'll do just about anything to keep a kiddo from hating math. If that means making something cute and colorful, so be it!

I am a mom to two great kids who are often the guinea pigs of my products. Thanks, M & G! I absolutely love what I do! In my life before teaching, I worked on insurance contracts. I had always wanted to teach, but was told from an early age that I was "too smart" to do that. I came to my senses a while back and haven't regretted a minute of it!
