I taught middle and high school level math for over 8 years before becoming a full-time stay at home mom.
My focus as teacher is to help students discover why math works. I love incorporating hands-on games, activities, and projects that encourage a thoughtful learning of math concepts.
Comment from former math student: "I have learned Mrs. Cruz's way of doing math and honestly it improved my math skills."
I have a B.A. in Middle Childhood Education from Cedarville University with emphasis in mathematics, reading, and language arts. I am working on a M.A. in Math Education Enhancement and Leadership from the University of Michigan.
I love patterns! You will find that my math materials often encourage students to look for patterns and develop math rules based on these patterns.
