TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This will be my 12th year teaching middle school math in Georgia. I have taught 5 years of 7th grade, 5 years of 8th grade, and will start on my 2nd year teaching both!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in balance when teaching math--a balance between the systematic and the exploratory. My classroom has a routine, but variations of lesson styles within the general structure. I love asking "why" and then "why" again. I also believe in the power of positivity--complimenting hard work and giving attention to the good. Treating students as if you are on the same team instead of making it a point to exercise your authority over them always builds stronger relationships, and thus builds their confidence and performance. My trademark is developing spiraling and/or cumulative review. This shows up in daily starters, weekly/bi-weekly quizzes, and cumulative review study guides. If they don't keep practicing it, they'll lose it! The resources I make for TpT, I'm actually making for my own classroom--and I never sit down to make an activity without a copy of the standards (GSE/Common Core) in my hands!
