I am very excited to be teaching Honors Geometry and College Algebra this year at Arizona College Prep! I am looking forward to having another successful year!!!
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from the University of New Mexico where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics and a Secondary Education certification. I also have a Master's degree in Natural Science (which is a STEM based degree) from the college of engineering at Arizona State University. I started teaching at ACP-Erie in 2014. I have taught in the Chandler Unified School District since 2006, eight of those years at Willis Jr. High School. Prior to that I taught at Scottsdale Educational Enrichment High School for 3 years, Thomas J. Pappas High School for 4 years, and in the Gallup McKinley County School District (New Mexico) for 3 years.
My Educational Philosophy
It is my belief that a classroom should be student centered and student driven. It is not my job to give students methods to solve problems, but to guide them to find solutions on their own. I believe that students learn best by being active participants who collaborate and share ideas in order to solve problems. I have high expectations for every student and I make them accountable for their learning. I try to make mathematics relevant by explaining where in the real world they might encounter the various problems that they study.
