##### About Shawandalyn

The most important goal for the past 11 years of my teaching career has been that every child will have a better understanding and appreciation for math. I first build a rapport with my students. When students build a relationship with their teachers they are often more involved in the learning process. Once I build a relationship with my students, they will recognize and appreciate that I am an effective teacher who really cares. This is the best reward that I can receive from a former student or parent. Once my students and I establish a virtuous relationship, trust and respect will automatically fit into the equation. My students know that my sincerity is genuine and that I truly believe in their ability to learn.

It is my intention that my students see the benefits of understanding mathematics and what can be done with it outside of school. I accomplish this task by guiding my students to become strong individual learners with constructive criticism and consideration from me. I help students become stronger individual learners by presenting lots of hands-on materials that give them the ability to ask questions and share their opinions and ideas. Incorporating real-world experiences will allow my students to find that same appreciation for math that I have and lead them to a greater understanding and higher performance.

For the 2015-16 school year, 96% of students passed their Geometry EOC Test with 87% of those students scoring an Excellent or a Good. I have taught algebra 1, geometry, 7th and 8th grade math, math essentials and financial math. I have also taught an ACT Prep class covering all subjects .
