TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught for 4 years in a large, public ISD and a smaller public charter school. I have taught algebra 1 for 4 years and have experience in 8th grade math and algebra 2. I have had strong results and am working on classes in a masters in education program about improving student achievement, alignment, and strong teacher instruction.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try to teach using a 5-E lesson model when possible. I approach teaching like a coach - I have high expectations and I am open and honest with my students.
