This year we are going to make huge strides in our mathematics learning. I'm excited for the opportunity to teach and learn here a C.J. Hooker Middle School. Math is a very serious and important topic, but I know we will have much fun together while learning in a classroom environment of mutual respect, humor, and caring.
My undergraduate background is primarily in mathematics education. At SUNY College at Oneonta, I received my bachelor of science in elementary education, with a mathematics concentration. During this time, I discovered my love for teaching mathematics. My graduate work has been focused on providing instruction for students with special needs. At East Stroudsburg University, I am working towards a masters in special education. My personal goal in teaching is to reach every child, addressing their needs as individuals.
I am currently certified to teach mathematics through grade twelve. However, My passion lies right here in middle school. I love and enjoy working with children, and look forward to many more years of teaching at this age level.
