About Me

I teach Math II and Math III Technical Readiness at Huntington High School in Huntington, WV. The 2014-15 school year will be my seventh year of teaching high school math. All my classes are co-taught with a special education teacher.

As a teacher, I believe that:
* all students have the right to learn in a safe classroom environment
* technology tools, when utilized correctly, enhance a child's learning
* students can bring their personal strengths to collaborate in a group
* understanding "why" and "how" allows a greater grasp on concepts than memorizing formulas and equations.
* parental communication and involvement are key in their child's education
* learning goes beyond the textbook, the classroom, and the school
* students can achieve anything when they put their minds to the task
* integrating other disciplines such as art and writing reinforces students' creativity in the math classroom
* Project Based Learning answers the students' essential question, "What are we ever going to use this for in real life?"
