I taught fifth grade in Virginia for three years before moving to Okinawa, Japan where I teach in a DoDs school. I taught 8th grade math/pre-algebra and math support classes last year and am currently teaching 7th grade math.
I hated math when I was in school, but love teaching it now especially since I can relate when the students just don't get it. I teach with a lot of differentiation and small group activities including learning stations. I have also introduced interactive notebooks this year, and I am very excited about them!
