I taught 6th grade math for 3-years, 7th grade pre-algebra for 14-years and currently teaching Math 7 and Algebra 1 for the past 3-years and I love "most" every minute!!
I am "old school" but willing to adapt to today's student. I am a firm believer in classwork, homework and generally pushing the pencil on the paper to get the practice needed for becoming successful. Once students have gained confidence in the math skills being taught by doing a lot of practice, I enjoy making task cards, gallery walks, and other activities for them to use their skills successfully.
I am just honored everyday to teach with amazing teachers and to have the opportunity to use my teaching skills to help students find success within themselves.
My mother taught for 51 years, so "it" is in my DNA. I live in Isle of Wight County, Virginia, but commute to Chesapeake, Virginia to teach 7th grade math and Algebra 1 at Western Branch Middle School - BRUINS ROAR!! I have a Degree in Business Management (this helps me "run" my class effectively) and a Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies - Math, Science and Education (this helps me understand what I am teaching). I also hold a Masters Degree in Middle School Education (this adds a few more dollars to my paycheck).
I hope you are in a classroom teaching what you love and with students that are easy to love and with educators who help you love what you do!
