TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My first year of teaching was 7th grade science in Waco, Texas. Then I got married and moved to Virginia, where I taught 8th grade mathematics (pre-algebra) for 7 years. Recently, we welcomed our first child, James Russell, so our family. Now I'm teaching 7th grade math.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I prefer hands-on, discovery learning with lots of discussion, activity, and analysis. My students sit in pairs so they can collaborate together before asking an adult for help.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Our school awards an in-school thing called the Starfish Award for outstanding staff or staff that go above and beyond. I say staff because anyone who works at the school can get it. I was given the Starfish Award.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from Texas A&M University with a bachelors of science in interdisciplinary studies. I am certified to teach grades 4-8 in math and science in Texas. I am also certified to teach grades 6-8 mathematics in Virginia.
