TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught middle school math for the last 13 years. I have experience working with gifted learners, English-language learners, and co-teaching with special education teachers.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Students should learn math through discovery, see it with multiple representations, and apply it through real-world STEM projects.
