    Hello! I’m Elisha Horbay from Toronto, Ontario. I teach grade 8 and am the special education teacher to grade 6-8 students. I have been teaching for 12 years and am constantly looking for new ways to engage my students. Kind of helps that I am interested in the whole concept of learning! I struggled with reading and writing as a kid, so math was my safe place. Eventually went on to study math in university and ultimately knew that I wanted to teach students to love math the way I did. At the same time fully knowing that how I was taught wouldn’t work for everyone. This year as I looked for new ways to introduce concepts I came across Kyle and Jon’s work, ended up registering in the Making Math Moments that Matter workshop and learned SO MUCH there that becoming a member of the Academy made logical sense. And here I am, now that the school year is over, finally getting a chance to dive into all the Academy has to offer. Looking forward to this journey!
