  • My instructional time will focus on 8th grade standards. Some critical areas of focus are: 1) Develop understanding of irrational numbers. 2. Develop understanding of expressions and equations, including solving linear equations, linear inequalities, and systems of linear equations. 3. Develop understanding of the concept of a function and use functions to describe quantitative relationships, including modeling an association in bivariate data with a linear equation. Please see the course description for a complete list of all the topics covered in this course.
I come to you with over 15 years of experience in STEM education. I am a certified educator in 6 different States. I hold a Bachelor's Degree of Science with distinguished honors. In addition, I hold a Masters Degree Science Education and Doctorate of Philosophy in Teaching Learning and Culture with a specialization in Science and Mathematics Education. You never stop learning! 
I became a teacher by choice. Teaching young minds has been one of the best things that has happened to me. I love to learn as much as I love to teach!
