Skills

TI-Nspire Graphing Calculator

I have taken three classes taught by Texas Instrument to learn about the Nspire graphing calculator. I am very comfortable using the calculator in my lesson and have helped other math teachers learn to use it as well.

SMARTBoard

I have used the SMARTBoard and SMARTNotebook in my lesson plans since the first day I had my own classroom. I have taken 3 inservice classes through my school district about the SMARTBoard and I have taught one about using the SMARTBoard in math classrooms.

Educational Philosophy

I want each of my students to leave my classroom with a better understanding of mathematics and problem solving. I want them to be able to think critically and enjoy learning. I want them to feel safe and comfortable in my classroom. I want to model compassion, empathy, and respect.
