I am now retired from teaching after about 15 years. My assignments were mostly math in departmentalized elementary and middle grade schools and also 3 years of high school geometry. After relocating back to my home state of Louisiana, and with my love and interest in geometry, I began a quest to build a geometry tool that would be a visual support to students learning about angles and polygons. That product, GeoLeg, is still the very best tool available. Since that time I have developed lessons, activities and other products that focus on geometry and measurement.
As a visual learner myself, I like to provide students with lots of visual aids and techniques. We have to be cognizant that our students come to us with different learning styles. Start with the basics and build to the complex. I also believe that to teach math, one must first be a reading teacher. Lessons must be clearly written with no ambiguity and, especially in geometry, with a focus on vocabulary.
Yet to be added
I earned my BS in Elementary Education at Georgia Southern College. After a few years of teaching elementary math I took additional courses so that I could add secondary math to my certification.
I am excited about transitioning and adding to my materials to meet the Common Core Curriculum. As part of those new materials, look for connections with architecture and art. Transforming those materials to PDF format will be a learning curve for me. All of my products are available for shipping from www.geoleg.com.
