I have been working as a middle school math teacher for the past four years. I have taught math to sixth and seventh grade students. I am certified to teach all subjects in elementary school and mathematics at the middle school level. Throughout the past few years as a middle school math teacher, I have helped many students strengthen their basic skills to allow them to be successful in other areas of math. I have attended many math trainings and conferences which have provided me with a wealth of teaching strategies and techniques to be able to reach all types of learners.
As a teacher, I use many hands-on manipulatives to help build a conceptual understanding of the concepts my students are learning. I also enjoy incorporating technology and math games into my lessons. It is very important as a teacher to make the connection between the math and real world applications. It is important for me to help my students build a confidence with problem solving that will help them be successful in the future, not only in math courses, but in college and beyond.
