I am an urban educator and have taught math for 4 years. In my professional settings, I have been awarded Teacher of the Month, Teacher Mentorship Award, and I am a 2x Teacher of the Year finalist.  I have a strong background in social emotional learning and have been trained in restorative justice practice, therapeutic crisis intervention, and dialectical behavioral therapy.  My classroom is my oasis and I'm sensitive and particular about outside influences that may impact student success.  
To engage in all courses, students will need stable internet and a device capable of video conferencing with working audio and visual needs.  Headphones are required to ensure minimal background interruption from influences outside of our virtual classroom.  Students are expected to maintain a notebook dedicated to their coursework and have necessary writing utensils.    A camera device or camera phone capable of uploading photos of student work is also required.  The camera on your laptop, tablet, or desktop may double for this feature.  A printer is not required but it is preferred.

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
2 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Creating accounts for Google Jamboard/Slides or Kahoot are not mandatory to complete this course.  Jamboard will be utilized to share student work and teacher feedback.  Kahoot will be utilized as a slide shows with interactive tools.  Parental consent is required for Kahoot.
I use a plethora of resources to create a unique learning experience designed to meet students needs. For this reason I pull from resources such as EngageNY, Illustratrive Math, Dan Meyer 3-Act Tasks, Estimation 180, Singapore Math, Math in Focus and more.  Students will need to have internet access to Google Jamboard, Desmos Online Graphing Calculator, Youtube,  Kahoot, and more interactive online programs.  For this reason, students will not be required to purchase texts.
