TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for ten years. The majority of those ten years were spent in middle school math classroom. Sprinkled amidst the years of math was a couple of years teaching Computer/Study Skills, a semester teaching math in an Adult Education nursing program and a semester teaching 5th grade at the Universal American School in Kuwait.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a creative, energetic person with a desire to re-ignite imagination and curiosity in the minds of the Tweens that enter my room every day. I feel that in addition to increasing their understanding of math it is my job to spark a love for learning in ALL of my students.
