About Jennifer

I have been teaching for 8 years. I began teaching in Pre-K. I spent one year in a private preschool program before being hired in a public elementary school. I then began teaching the third grade. I have experience in all 5 subjects at the elementary level.

Math is the area that I struggled the most with in school. This began at an early age and followed me to college. it has now given me a passion to make sure students understand their math work. I spend a lot of time looking for ways to help different learners understand the material. Because math builds on itself I believe it is important to help the students as soon as a problem arises.

Common Core is confusing because it is not the way most adults were taught. I have been to many workshops on common core and understand how to present the material. Once you have seen how they arrived at their answer, it can make a lot of sense. I think it is also a great way to teach students that struggle in certain areas. It allows them to see many different ways to arrive at the answer and they are able to choose the method that works best for them.

I have spent the last four years teaching the third grade. This is the first year the students have taken the state's standardized test. It is my responsibility to prepare them to be able to take it.
