When I taught 7th grade math, this skill was all over common core. I developed a detailed lesson on word problems, graphing, and tables of directly proportional relationships. It was difficult for my kids to find the equation from a graph when the

When I first started teaching scale factor to 7th graders, I wanted to pull my hair out because I really couldn't find this skill in our textbooks. This year I decided I was going to just create my own. This lesson has 66 slides and can be taught

Teaching Slope as a unit rate doesn't have many options for powerpoints that you search in google. I made this to accompany things I found from google. It treats slope as a unit rate of a directly proportional relationship.

The hardest standard to teach in 7th grade is linear versus non-linear relationships. All we do is touch the surface of linear relationships and don't even apply non linear relationships in any other standard. I narrowed this down to a system of

I taught my heart out during this unit. However, I had to create something to help students use a multiple choice test against itself and how to choose the correct multiple choice answer. I know we are going away from this with common core, but I

For some reason, making a Box and Whisker Plot is hard for my students. I narrowed all Box and Whisker Plots down into 4 categories based on how many numbers in a data set. This foldable was a big hit in my classroom. When you buy the product, I

When to flip an inequality, is a really hard concept for students. They never get it. I made this powerpoint for a final ditch effort to explain it to 7th graders.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching math for 10 years. Throughout those 10 years, I have taught 6th grade, 7th grade, 8th grade, and Algebra 1. 8th grade and Algebra 1 are my specialties. I love teaching math and have maintained great test scores.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I would say that I truly care if students enjoy my class. I do group work, partner work, peer tutoring, online activities, foldables, and plenty of dry erase practice. My lessons are mostly powerpoints that I have worked on and perfected over the years. My lessons are designed to be user friendly and kids love my class.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I'm more of a "behind the scenes type person." I don't need awards to prove that I am a good teacher. I would rather share every lesson I have and no recognition.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I am an Honors Graduate of Emory and Henry College, in Emory, Virginia.

I've always wanted to be a math teacher. I had a ninth grade math teacher that changed my life and made me care about school. Since 9th grade, I wanted to provide students with the same experience I had with a great teacher.
