TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hello! My name is Kristen Miller. I'm currently in my 10th year teaching high school mathematics, and my FIRST year teaching a STEAM-based course called Innovation & Design. The mathematics subjects I've been fortunate to teach over my years include: Pre-Algebra, Transition to Algebra 1, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Honors Algebra 2, and Real Life Math/Math Applications. Of all of the courses I've taught, Real Life Math/Math Applications has been my absolute favorite! I have a true passion for teaching students real-world applicable math that ALL students can relate to and find success with. I've built an extensive real-life math curriculum for topics we as adults deal with on a consistent basis: interest & banking, credit cards, loans, insurance, paychecks, taxes, investing, stock market, etc.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Tough love :) I believe students need high expectations, firm boundaries, and genuine care for their success. My classroom management style is based on the amazing book "Teaching with Love and Logic." I have seen these practices transform the most challenging students, and have used these practices on a daily basis to encourage students to achieve their best!
