TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have 11 years of experience at the elementary level. My first four years were in fifth grade, three years in fourth grade, one year in a third/fourth grade split classroom, and, three years as a math interventionist working with the most struggling students in any grade but primarily grades first through fifth. I service students in both a tier II push-in and a tier III pull-out intervention model. What makes me most happy is when I am called on to assist new and experienced classroom teachers with curriculum planning, pacing, team-teaching, coaching, differentiation, assessment/unit creation and data analysis.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Begin with assessing students' current level of understanding and take it from there! The best thing about elementary math is that it can be entirely hands-on. I can't think of a standard that can't be brought to life with real world problem solving and manipulatives. Being a math interventionist and working with the most at-risk students, I incorporate a lot of mnemonic devices, videos and songs into my teaching whenever possible. Be sure to start students at a level where they have success and stagger challenging and less challenging problems so they do not give up. I am in love with learning targets for better focus of the students and the teacher as well. Teaching is a very complex job and I am up for the adventure and the challenge!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I am truly honored to work with the students I serve, every day. These struggling students deserve an award sometimes as most of their day they are working (if they are working) at frustration level. Thank heaven my district is putting money toward interventionists for students who don't have IEPs. I am also honored to be part of a group of teacher bloggers, authors and sellers. I have a lot to learn and they inspire me!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I hold a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from Oakland University, with minors in math and social studies and a Masters of Educational Studies, Curriculum and Leadership, also from Oakland University. In addition to my formal studies, I have attended many conferences and have done a great deal of personal research in the area of teaching math to elementary students.

I have been married for 22 years and am the mother of two grown children, Robyn and Anthony. I also have two furry babies, Louie and Micah who I walk faithfully 12 months of the year at the local state parks and hiking trails in the beautiful state of Michigan. I love to write, socialize with other teachers, play cards, and binge watch Netflix.
