During college I worked as a Mathematics tutor for middle, secondary, and college level students. Since I graduated from college in 2008 with a License to Educate, I have taught Mathematics at the middle, secondary, and college levels. I have served as a Lead Mathematics Teacher, Mathematics Department Head, Head of a Mathematics Curriculum writing team, and as a member of the writing panel for my state's Mathematics Standards. Currently, I teach Mathematics to 7th through 12th grade Visually Impaired students, and I am developing a foundational Mathematics program for Visually Impaired students.
In my classroom, textbooks are rarely used. I prefer to design Mathematics lessons that are creative and have relevant real-world components. My students learn through discovery and collaboration in order to help them develop their critical thinking and interpersonal skills.

2003 - 2005 I attended Greenville Technical College before transferring to Converse College where I majored in Mathematics and minored in Secondary Education. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics and a License to Educate. I returned to Converse College in 2011 as a graduate student in order to study Education with an emphasis on Secondary Mathematics, and I earned a Master of Education Degree in 2013.
I enjoy creating Mathematical Art. My media are Photography, Jewelry, and Data Visualization. I have two Math blogs. One of my blogs is specific to teaching Math to students with visual impairments (http://teacher.scsdb.org/gwriborg). The other blog has free downloadable Mathematics activities and resources that I have created (http://MistressOfMath.com)
