This is my fifth year teaching in a high-needs school in southeastern Virginia. I have taught Algebra 1 for all 5 of those years and Algebra 2 for 4 of those years.
I believe that students learn best by exploring and discovering rules and patterns than being told to memorize something. I also encourage my students to work together through difficult material in pairs/groups so that they can build confidence and interpersonal skills.
This is my second year as the Algebra 1 team leader of my school.
I graduated from SUNY Cortland in upstate New York in 2010 with a B.S. in Adolescent Education: Mathematics (7-12) and with an additional major in Physics. I am currently working towards a Masters in Aerospace Engineering.
I am wildly obsessed with bears and big cats and other very dangerous, furry animals. I would definitely be that crazy person who gets mauled while trying to cuddle with them. Stuffed animals and a cat who is intolerant of too much love has had to suffice so far.
