I've been teaching math since 2000. Over the years we've seen many wonderful achievements in our classroom. I'm thankful to have Teachers Pay Teachers as a platform for sharing the resources used to maximize student learning.
I love to have fun with competition. I usually add a competitive edge to any activity to keep the students on their toes. In the end everyone wins with fun activities that include important learning standards.
I hang my hat on the large improvement my students make on our annual standardized exam. I know we can't put too much weight on standardized exams, but you wouldn't believe how excited my students are when the results are mailed home.
I have a B.A. in Math and an M.S. in Education. I don't put much weight in the degrees, I believe experience is more valuable.
I am married to a wonderful woman and have 3 children.
