The 1992 "Los Angeles Riots" proved to be a turning point for my life. Living at that time in Echo Park, I found myself in the middle of the conflict. Struck by the pathos of the chaos, I made a decision, to become an agent for change. Believing education to be the key to this objective, I became a highly effective, inner-city Elementary Math Coach and Teacher.
My success with students not only showed up with improved test scores of students, but in their joy of learning. I coached many teachers on how to use 'Best Practices' in teaching CA State Standards in Mathematics. My methodology of teaching mathematics is the 'Four Fold Way'. A student learns best by using different modalities. If a student can express the math problem with a drawing, with numbers, with an algebraic expression, and in writing then the understanding is complete. Learning is wonderful.
