Hello! My name is Carmen Shugert, and I would like to share with you a little about me
My Education and Professional Background
I hold a BS in Civil Engineering, and worked for three years in the industry as a contractor for Ford Motor Co. I also have a Masters Degree in curriculum development and instruction from NAU. I am married and have three boys, all of them in college!! I have been teaching mathematics since 2004 at the best high school in Chandler. I am fortunate to say that teaching is my passion and enjoy being around my students.
My Educational Philosophy
I base my teaching on the belief that the only way to learn mathematics is to do mathematics. While the process of reading examples and proofs in textbooks and from lecture notes is valuable, the real learning comes through one's own efforts at solving mathematical problems, either computational, theoretical, or both. This is achieved mostly through class assignments, but also through in class discussions and exercises. I view my role as a facilitator for this process. I must design the framework in which learning can take place, and then stimulate and nurture the students' development, giving help in terms of knowledge, techniques, and encouragement.
