TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Over the years I have taught algebra 1, algebra 2, pre-algebra, geometry, consumer math, biology and general science, and am certified in Massachusetts to teach math grades 1-12, biology and students with moderate disabilities. Teaching math-phobic students turned out to be my strength. Once a kid "gets" math, their whole words opens up.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My number one goal is to always teach math in a way that includes everyone and that gives students encouragement and confidence to take more years of math. To me, giving 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". It's in the Teens Talk Middle School book and was originally a story I wrote for a graduate class.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

As an undergrad, I majored in Environmental Science at UMass Amherst. I added a math teaching certification to my biology certification and went on to study Mathematics for Teaching in graduate school at Harvard Extension School at night while teaching. A few years later, I pursued my Special Education license.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I blog about math teaching at scaffoldedmath.com. I also have a Facebook group called Visual Math that I hope you will join!
