As a young mother, I taught my three children at home for 11 years before going back to school and earning my credentials to teach. I have been teaching in public schools for over 4 years, and my specialty is eighth grade mathematics. Prior to homeschooling, my career was engineering, which I often draw upon to illustrate lessons in the math classroom.
My teaching style revolves around the interests and needs of my students. I use various types of projects to demonstrate the uses and process of mathematics in the classroom. As a teacher of eighth graders, I try to include the subject of food in many of my projects, since these young teens can always relate to food, the one subject that is ever on their minds. In summary, I mostly use a project-based style of teaching.
