Welcome to my Teacher Page,
I have been teaching mathematics for the past eighteen years in the areas of basic mathematics, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Math of Finance, Concepts of Geometry and College Preparatory Geometry.
This 2018-2019 school year, I am teaching the 7th grade Common Core Math Standards at Hamburg. The Common Core mathematical standards use the philosphy of eight key practices: make sense of problems and persevere in solving them, reason abstractly and quantitatively, construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others, model with mathematics, use appropriate tools strategically, attend to precision, look for and make use of structure, and look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning. While the math curriculum is very rigorous, incorporating the eight key practices will allow students to develop a deeper understanding of math concepts so that they may realize success in middle school, in high school, and beyond.
Communication is essential to the success of a student. Please feel free to contact me if you should ever have any questions or concerns.
