TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I began my teaching career in 1993, and have taught geometry, algebra, pre-algebra, Title I Math, and college algebra. Currently, I teach honors geometry and pre-algebra to 8th graders.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My math classroom is an organized, structured, and encouraging environment. My students are engaged in constant practice of concepts, and I provide after-school study sessions before major quizzes and tests. My recent addition of 2-3 exit tickets per week has really helped my students retain concepts, and helps me see who could benefit from extra help or enrichment. I've also created many spiraling (looping) practice resources, and they work wonders with my students to remember concepts! Many of my resources are leveled, so students of all abilities can reach their goals.
