TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Over 22 years in mathematics, from Grade 7 through college.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Problem Solving and Problem Posing are the most important skills we can teach our children. They do not learn them by passively sitting in class. They are dynamic skills learned over time with constant practice. Some of my lessons are more basic, but all require the student to be an active, aware, and cooperating member of the class. That goes for ELL, ESE, and students with other issues. I call this Fearless Teaching and I invite you to join me to "Go Forth and Do Math!" .
