I have worked for 5 years in a private K-12 school as a mathematics/physics teacher. I have taught math from grades 4 to 12 and really enjoy what I do.
I like variety. I like to try different things with the hope of finding something that works. Kids learn at different paces and in different ways and as much as possible I try to modify my teaching to what my kids need. Much of what I do involves out-of-the-desk group activities where kids work together to solve challenging and engaging problems.
I received an award for Up and Coming Teacher in my first year of teaching.
I have a Bachelor of Education with a specialization in mathematics and a minor in physical science from Canadian University College (now known as Burman University). I recently graduated from the University of Waterloo with a Master's in Mathematics for Teachers.
If you've read this much of my profile already I'm impressed! I guess the other things I would say about myself are that I enjoy playing and coaching senior volleyball, I love pretty much any kind of game (board, card, video), and I believe pizza is a food sent to us from the culinary gods on high and I am forever grateful for their gift to mankind.
