    My name is Deborah and I teach in Mesquite, Texas. I have taught Algebra 1 (freshmen) for 9 years. Last year I started a new course in the district for seniors called College Prep Mathematics. It is a remedial course for students who did not pass the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) for college entrance. 

    I joined this community because my students are the ones that traditional teaching failed. They are pretty “damaged” by their math experiences and feel like the “just are no good at math”. I found last year that they responded well to a much more hands on, exploratory approach. I do not have enough tools in my toolbox yet. I landed here during my quest for knowledge.
