New member – Courtney Madora
Courtney Madora from Saint Augustine Florida here! I am a middle school math teacher, currently teaching Standard 7th grade and Algebra.
My dad always told me I would make a great teacher, but I did the opposite of everything he said I should! After a couple of years in sales, I decided to go back to school to get my teaching certificate (after my dad stopped telling me I should be a teacher). I have been teaching since 2006, minus a couple of years when I had my kiddos.
I joined the academy after listening to every podcast during my daily runs/driving to school. I have loved teaching since day one, but I have also discovered a passion for sharing what I am learning. The podcast truly changed me as a teacher and I am so grateful for “stumbling” upon it this summer!
