It is important for students to feel mathematical success, accomplishment and achievement often. This will come as they meaningfully interact with mathematical concepts guided by me, their teacher. Through effective instruction and effort, student understanding and love of math will increase, creating powerful problem solvers. It is of great importance, then, that I have the skills and knowledge necessary to instruct effectively.
To stay on top of the most effective instructional techniques and technologies, I found Michigan State University’s Masters of Arts in Educational Technology program. The courses challenged me and taught me to be a better teacher. Please read about my entire MAET experiences here.
To stay on top of mathematics I’ve become a Indiana Wesleyan University Wildcat by enrolling in their graduate certificate program in mathematics. Please read about my experience as a math student myself here.
Though I have been teaching since 2005, it is important that I continue to learn and that I, as a student, feel success, accomplishment and achievement in whatever I learn. I have taught in Utah and will be starting a new adventure in Detroit. Please read about my teaching experiences and a few fun stories here.
