I love teaching and helping students to see and to understand mathematics. I believe that in order for a student to truly understand mathematics, the student must be engaged in his learning. While I may set up a lesson and have a purpose and a learning goal I want the student to achieve, I do allow the student to drive the lesson. In my class, I have had the students use interactive displays and stylus-enabled tablets to display their work in class. One student was assigned to show his work to the class by sharing his work on his tablet on the interactive display. This has allowed me to work individually with students that may be having some difficulties with the material, while keeping an eye on the work that the student was demonstrating in the class. This allowed the other students in the class to check their work and to help the student demonstrating his work make corrections; as the other students would offer feedback if their solutions did not agree. I have also used OneNote to monitor my students' work on assignments and to offer individual feedback on the student's work. My use of technology in class has been focused on enhancing the students'learning of mathematics.
I have always wanted to be a teacher. I have been lucky to have been able to teach good students and to work at a school that allowed me to take risks and to experiment with the use of technology.
I have recently relocated to Arlington, TN and would like to continue my work as a mathematics teacher.
