Hey from the Carolinas!
I grew up in NC, lived and taught in Korea for 12 years, and I now live and teach in SCC! i teach 8th grade math (Pre-Algebra and Algebra 1), and I love to help students discover and figure things out to where they verbally say”Ohhhh…. I get it!”
I’m very happy in the land of theory, but I understand the students’ need to know ways to use what they’re learning, so I’ve recently tried to relearn math from a more practical approach.. Doing the MMMTM workshop really helped me wrap my head around how to grow my students more intentionally as problem-solvers, and I’m excited to continue down this path of learning!!
