I've been teaching middle school math for over 20 years. I am part of a family of teachers - both my parents, my husband, brothers, and sister-in-laws all teach middle or high school. My high school products are created with the help of my "team" who have decades of high school math teaching experience.
I believe students need to be exposed to a topic in a variety of ways. I especially love activities that have bright colors, are fun to display around the room, cooperative, and most of all - are self-checking. Kids are more likely to try a problem again if there are answers to choose from. Immediate feedback is so important. I have been buying amazing activities on TPT for years. I recently decided to start selling some of my own favorite creations.
Taking my Math Counts team to a local competition and placing third behind two private schools who always take 1st and 2nd, earning "Most Improved School," and advancing to the state competition.
BS in Math and Masters in Secondary Education from UCLA
Born and raised in sunny Southern California, I graduated from UCLA with a degree in mathematics and stuck around to earn my Master's in Secondary Education. I live outside of Los Angeles with my husband, three teenagers, and lots of pets. I've been teaching at the junior high level since 1995 and still love going to work each day!
