Hello! I have been lucky enough to teach 5th and 6th grade math over the course of the past two years! I am also currently studying Curriculum and Instructional Design and I love to apply that to the products that I make. I have received the second highest test scores in the state where I most recently taught - and love to take a practical approach to creating material. Although I have worked a lot with upper elementary students, I also enjoy the fundamentals of math education. I am currently exploring more on how to build strong mathematicians from an early age!
I have a very practical, no frills, not too much fuss approach to math problem solving. I love to give practical, real life problems for my students to solve. I also don't mind if they struggle a bit. : ) I think perseverance is the key to problem solving and work just as hard at expanding minds as I do hitting math standards.
