7th Year Mathematics Teacher who has taught every common core mathematics class in the past 2 years. I have developed the curriculum for the Common core Geometry which was a challenge based on the lack of material. Using this material, I was able to get 95% of my students to pass the regents exam (with 20% receiving mastery). Hopefully with the modifications of the lessons after my first year teaching, Mastery numbers will improve.
I love to do hands on discovery activities with the students but however I do realize that sometimes they are a bit much for a class in 40 minutes. Also, I like to make it a treat rather than a standard. Many of my lessons have hands on component with Patty Paper or graphing activities.
Highly Effective Teacher for 2012-2016 School years.
Masters of Arts in Teaching Mathematics 7-12 from Boston University Bachelors of Arts in Applied Mathematics from Boston University.
Love teaching mathematics and see their success as they have those "I got it" moments!
