I have 14 years of teaching experience in elementary and middle level classrooms. My main focus is currently seventh, eighth, and ninth grade math. I have also taught Social Studies, Language Arts and Science. I teach in an Apple Distinguished School and love to integrate technology in our 1:1 classroom. I have presented sessions on problem solving at the Iowa Council of Teachers of Mathematics Seminar and at a 1:1 Regional Conference.
I believe in presenting material to students in a way they will find interesting and increase their curiosity. Their desire to succeed drives me to challenge students and help guide them in the right direction.
