I am a high school math teacher in Phoenix! I have been teaching various mathematics over a period of 15 years, as well as currently working on perusing National Board Certification for AYA-Mathematics. I hold Teaching Credentials in the states of Arizona, Mississippi, and California. More than anything else, mathematics, and learning in general, should matter to students. My teaching philosophy is very simple: raise the bar of expectations, treat students with kindness and humor, help students confront their fears, and teach them to know and love the subject matter. Teaching mathematics requires one of the most difficult efforts on the part of a human being: sacrificing self to idea. Many students are afraid of mathematics, and my goal is to help students understand the source of this fear. Once they are no longer afraid, they can then enjoy mathematics, give them encouragement, confidence, practice, and good feedback. My goal is to help them develop the habit of diligence and perseverance, help them make connections to their world, and help them to be successful specially in the area of Mathematics.
