I'm a high school math teacher at Pisgah High School in Canton, North Carolina, USA. I have taught 9th - 12th graders at all level of mathematics, but am currently teaching 10th - 12th graders in Math 3 (Algebra 2 and some Geometry concepts) and AP Calculus BC.
One word that describes me would be 'curious', a trait which has served me well as a teacher and life-long learner.
Three interesting things about me are:
1). I have made five t-shirt quilts and am working on completing a sixth.
2). Riding my bike is my favorite way to exercise and destress.
3). I teach in the high school from which I graduated.
A great classroom is one in which students are empowered to be actively involved in the learning process. In such a classroom, students explore the content, develop their understanding, and make connections to the ways in which that knowledge can serve them and their communities beyond school. Students are actively involved in their learning, and inquiry helps drive them.
I took part in GEA's 2019 trip to Finland, Sweden & the Baltics, St. Petersburg, & Lapland. I look forward to many more amazing experiences in the future!
