"I have 7 years of experience as a middle school teacher and a passion for mathematics. I have experience with very diverse groups of students. I have spent the last 7 years in Hawaii, Wisconsin, and Colorado. I enjoy working with all personality types and learning abilities. I believe that in order to encourage students to take ownership of their learning and increase their interest in math they need to be involved in interactive lessons where each concept will "come to life"and grow confidence"
