TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a high school teacher certified to teach math, biology and students with moderate disabilities. Over the years I have taught Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Pre-algebra, Geometry, Consumer Math, Biology and General Science. In my current position I teach Special Education Algebra 2 and Consumer Math and love it! Teaching Math-phobic students has turned out to be my strength. Once a kid "gets" math, the whole words opens up.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My number one goal is to always teach math in a way that includes everyone and that makes my students want to go on to take more years of math. To me, giving my students confidence and desire to continue their math education is the most important thing I can do.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I'm a published author of a Chicken Soup for the Soul story called "The Eye Patch". This is a completely random fact but did once land me a teaching job. It's in the Teens Talk Middle School book.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I was always a fan of science but not so much of cutting things up so I majored in environmental science in college. I added a math certification to my biology certification and went on to study Mathematics for Teaching in graduate school. A few years later I pursued my special education license.
