I have taught 7th grade math for almost 20 years, and I know that I have the best job in the world. I am also the Math club sponsor, and last year I started Coding Club.
I like to keep my students actively involved in class, with lots of classroom discussions and cooperative learning. I feel like the most important thing I can do is help students not learn rote procedures, but really make sense of math.

I grew up always wanting to be a teacher, and now I am! When I'm not at school, I enjoy reading, watching movies and playing games with my family.
