"Many times the reason for an outburst in class or confusion about an assignment is an underlying need for help or an issue. This may be the minor need of extra practice on two digit multiplying, or the “why” of fractions. As a teacher, wife, sister, friend, aunt, daughter, and student, I have learned that you need to back up and figure out the cause of the problem. Alleviating the minor needs can prevent major needs and gaps down the road."

Flexibility is a critical component of a successful teaching approach; each teaching opportunity presents a unique (and welcome!) challenge as every student has his/her own style of learning. I enjoy developing new approaches in order to effectively encourage student success. I also foster an open and easy channel of communication, and invite students to approach me with any questions, worries, or problems they may have."
