 "The classroom should not be about direct instruction. Human beings should not be passive...they should be interacting with each other, solving problems, or making things." -Sir Ken Robinson

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I believe that classrooms, even in high school, should be run by students who are driving their own learning. Everything we do should foster curiosity, encourage students to discover, and be culturally relevant. I specialize in urban, public ed. and private ed. My experience includes: 7th-12th NCTM and CCSS, 8th-10th grade integrated math, and Phillips Exeter Harkness Math 1 & 2. Currently, I'm an instructional coach for Career and Technical Education teachers (applied math!).

MY TEACHING STYLE

I live for project based learning and using Math to better understand real world scenarios. Most of my resources are exploratory; students must look for patterns to help them solve problems or draw conclusions. I never give away an answer!
