Teaching middle school math has been my passion for 19 years now. I enjoy creating new learning experiences for my students.
My teaching philosophy revolves around moving student's thinking. We do this through discovery, diving deeper than just "how" to solve the problem, but "why" the math works. Every day I strive for that light bulb moment with my students.
