TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching math for 15 years started with 6th grade and now I am a math specialist and work with all elementary grades k-6. I have taught many workshops, and specialize in teaching rational numbers in a conceptual way. I have invented an expandable decimal/fraciton number line, currently being sold by ETA (Hand2Mind), and have been a speaker at the NCTM's several times and my topic was a hands-on approach to teaching decimal and fraction concepts. Check out my downloadable paper decimal number line.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that students need to be able to visualize what they are learning. Students need to use hands-on manipulatives and games to be actively engage in learning.
