I am a certified PK-6 Virginia teacher with additional certifications and specialization in Gifted and Talented Advanced Academics and the inquiry-based International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP). I have over 15 years of experience teaching for schools, homeschool groups, and families around the world. I believe all children have an inherent love for learning, and, because I love math and believe math literacy is an essential skill that all children can learn to the highest levels, I have specialized in math and STEAM-related education. 
Following each class, your child will have two or more “Weekly Challenges” (optional homework) to practice what we’ve learned together. Weekly Challenges include science or art projects and assigned Beast Academy online math lessons (online Beast Academy account provided at no cost for the duration of this class). On average, students spend 1-3 hours outside of class on the Weekly Challenges. 
Class Materials: - For all our classes, students should always have a pencil, paper (or whiteboard and marker), scissors, colored pencils/markers/crayons on hand, ruler, and a protractor on hand. A supply list will be emailed a week before any class if additional materials are suggested or required. *Note: Exact supplies may vary depending on which project(s) your child chooses to do, so not all materials may be needed or your child may want to creatively alter the challenges requiring slightly different materials. Weekly Challenge Materials: - Students will typically use the materials listed above throughout the week that are also required for class. *Note: One Beast Academy online account will be used for homework assignments. One account is included with every student enrolled and will be available for use throughout the duration of the class at NO ADDITIONAL COST.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Beast Academy Online Licenses: I have contracted for permission to integrate Beast Academy Online for commercial purposes in my classes and private tutoring. Therefore, each student enrolled in this course is provided a personal license for no additional cost while enrolled in this class. Please do NOT purchase a separate account because I will expect students to use the one I provide, so I may track their progress to better inform future lessons. If you'd like to learn more about Beast Academy Online please go to https://beastacademy.com/online.

BrainPOP: I have contracted for permission to integrate BrainPOP into my classes. No student account is required because this resource will be used during class via screensharing by the teacher only.
