Bio

I am excited to have your child in my class and looking forward to aiding in their journey of success!  I have a great passion for the subject of Mathematics, and I plan to encourage and motivate your child to learn, understand, and challenge them this year.

I believe that a good math student is someone who is a problem solver, creative, and works well with others. Thus, i structure my class around engaging tasks that students have to work together in order to come up with a solution. I know that many 7th grade students enjoy talking! For this reason, I try to allow a lot of productive conversation in my class. If you visit my class I hope that you will see students discussing their ideas about how to solve a problem or listening to to other students' ideas and asking genuine questions. One reason these are valuable skills is because these are the skills that employers look for.
