I taught 6th grade math before becoming a Math Specialist at an elementary school. I have been a Math Specialist for grades K-5 for the past 7 years. I work with parents, teachers, and students to boost their mathematical knowledge and understanding.
I believe that children need to take charge of their learning and actively be engaged with the material to really get the most from their education experience. Talking about math with other children and adults is very beneficial in strengthening their understanding.
Yet to be added
I have a bachelors in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Mathematics as well as a masters in math education.
I am so passionate about math and helping others understand math at a deeper level. I am a huge supporter of Common Core Math because I think it is going to really give children the opportunity to gain strong foundations in math at a young age so that they will be ready for math in middle school, high school, and beyond. I also think that this strong foundation will give them the confidence in math so that they are really able to excel at it.
