I am one of those annoying people who can’t help but gush about how much I love my job. I am currently in my 10th year of teaching. I teach 6th grade math, as well as a math enrichment class. Over the past 8 years I have taught math grades 6-9 (Algebra), 6th and 7th grade science, Social Studies grades 6-8 and literacy.
As a math teacher, my goal is to get my students motivated and engaged in what they are learning. By the time I meet them in 6th grade, many have such negative attitudes and experiences with math. My challenge is to meet them at their level and help them make strides and progress.
