TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Middle school math teacher since 1974... Rutland Town School, Vermont.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I've been creating middle school math units for many years... study guides, problems, projects, and assessments. I've never been particularly fond of textbooks, preferring to do my own thing. I've decided to share some of my work on TpT. Hope you enjoy it and would appreciate your candid feedback.
