- I’ve been a high school math teacher for the past 12 years. I currently teach Algebra, Probability & Statistics, and Trigonometry. I loved math in school and I still do. The most enjoyable thing about my job is working with young students and watching them ‘get’ things.
- My favorite problem to do with my classes is MysteryPlots. Students are given eight different unlabeled scatterplots and eight different pairs of variables. Students need to determine which variables match which scatterplots. I’ve been doing this problem for a while. I should probably do some updating to it.
- What makes my class mine…. I’ve been teaching for a while now, and I don’t think I’ve found that one big thing that has stuck throughout the years. Or at least I can’t think of it right now. I do take pride in trying new things, and trying to be innovative.
- What brought me to MTBoS? A co-worker actually sent me a link to check it out. I’ve been on twitter following some mathy bigwigs and I’ve been inspired to get on the bandwagon. Also, I just want to be a better teacher.
