What I do
I help students learn and make connections with the mathematics content through real world oriented problems, the use of instructional technology, and explicit teaching.
How I make a difference at YTCTE
I have the ability to connect with each student which enables me to challenge them on different levels, empower them and leave a footprint in the sand of their existence.
My favorite part about what I do
I am a teacher at heart. I know that assessments, field trips and other outings are a part of the educational experience, but I enjoy coming to work to teach.The most rewarding part of teaching is engaging with the students and the challenge of meeting the diverse needs of my students.
I take pride in connecting with parents, students, and all stakeholders to build a scaffolding community for the success of my students. It is so important to me that I constantly pray for the success for my students.
