I have been privileged to be a teacher for the past 41 years. I graduated from St. Cloud State University in Minnesota with an Elementary Education degree, and a math minor. I earned a Master of Science degree in Curriculum and Instruction, with a Math Specialist focus from Black Hills State University in South Dakota. I taught elementary grades 3, 5 and 6 for the first 8 years of my career. When I started teaching Middle School, I was able to concentrate on my passion, which is math. I taught 6th grade math for 21 years and 8th grade math for 6 years. The last three years of my teaching career I was a part-time math interventionist and an Online Math instructor, utilizing the Edgenuity Online program.
I believe all students can learn. It is the responsibility of the instructor to provide opportunities for success and guidance in solving problems. There are many ways to approach math problem-solving. I support students in developing the math skills needed at each grade level and in applying those skills to problems they encounter. Through my years of teaching, I have learned how to assess student errors and help to alleviate them. I developed and taught a supplemental Math Enrichment program for At-Risk math students as a 6th grade math teacher. Students not only developed specific skills but also gained the confidence needed to be willing to attempt math problems.
I am a patient, caring teacher who will evaluate a student's needs before addressing ways to improve their skills. I am confident in my ability to tutor math at all grade levels, as well as English/Language Arts and Social Studies.
