I have taught 3rd Grade, 5th Grade, as well as being a elementary mathematics resource teacher. I am a current administrator.
I am a visual learner, so I feel it is important to provide students with concrete materials and visual representations of those manipulatives. Many times, we skip right from concrete to abstract without giving students opportunities to represent things or see visual representations. This is a valuable bridge for students to cross.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Salisbury University and a Master's Degree in Administration from McDaniel College. I was a mathematics resource teacher for two years before becoming an administrator, I have a passion for Mathematics and making it visual so that kids can conceptually understand the math!!
