I teach sixth grade math in a high poverty urban school with a widely diverse student population in which over half of my students qualify for free or reduced lunch. Despite the odds working against many of them and no matter what challenges they face outside of school, I strive to build a positive, energetic, and safe classroom where all children can walk in ready to learn and to be a kid.
My students enter our sixth grade math classroom every single day with a thirst for learning and a positive mindset, which inspires me to be the best possible teacher I can be.
I have been teaching sixth grade math for twelve years, but I continually strive to add new, positive, and exciting teaching strategies and activities to my "teaching toolbox" for the benefit of all of my students!
In over a dozen years of teaching experience, I have strived to avoid having a “cookie cutter” math classroom by creating fun, engaging, and highly effective hands-on learning experiences for my students, every single day. My approach to teaching math helps to change math-phobic students into math lovers! This conference will allow me to learn, explore, and co-create with some of the nation's most extraordinary educators as we make waves in education by exploring some of the most current research based strategies for effective learning. During the Get Your Teach On Conference, I will attend sessions such as The Glow Games, The Magic of Rigor, Set The Stage To Engage, Math With the MIs in Mind, and “ACT”ions Speak Louder Than Words. I am SO excited to attend these sessions, and I am even more excited to bring these ideas back to my classroom to use with my students!
