14 years teaching pre-algebra and algebra in a city school. I have taught Pre--Algebra and Algebra in general ed classes, special ed (direct instruction ) classes, honors classes and math remediation classes. I have also been on committees who have determined the scope and sequence of our curriculum and prepared the implementation guides for our curriculum.
I have a healthy mix of a traditional classroom and a classroom in which learning takes place through student centered activities and games. I believe that students learn best when they do not realize they are learning! Games and activities, especially partner activities facilitate a fun and engaging learning environment.

I received my BS of Mathematics at age 38! Graduate work in math education.
My husband of years and we have raised a beautiful and successful son. I have a truly wonderful grandson.
