    Hello from the San Francisco Bay Area!

    I’m excited to join this community to learn more about making math moments matter and increasing engagement and growth mindset with my students.

    I will be teaching a new “2nd math class” intervention course for 6th grade this upcoming school year in middle school and need some ideas to reach these reluctant learners.

    I have been teaching middle school math (grade 6 to 8) for about 10 years now.  Teaching is my 2nd career after working as a civil engineer.  It has been a challenging job for me but also very rewarding.

    Thanks,

    Leslie

    Welcome Leslie! 

    We’re honoured that you have chosen to join the Academy. Most of the classes I teach are middle school aged students in need of some intervention too. 

    We’re looking forward to learning with you.
