I been teaching for 16 years. For 15 years, I taught everything you can teach to 7th and 8th graders from double blocked math for low performers to Algebra 1 for high school credit. I moved to 5th grade in 2015 - 16 for many reasons. One being I needed a new challenge, a new environment and new surroundings. I love elementary and enjoy showing the students where they are going in their math education.
I am pretty laid back for a math teacher. Or at least that's what I'm told. I like making math fun. I love when the students are so engaged that they say things like "It's time to go already?" and "I never really liked math til now." Hands on, real life math is how and what I like to teach.
