I believe that all students can learn and have access to mathematics at any level, it is a matter of finding their lens to unlock the content. I infuse my lessons with joy, harnessing the power of music and rhyme. We approach our study of math using numeric, pictorial and analytic lenses, consistently weaving the three together to create deep and lasting understanding. Getting the right answer is great, but problem solving and knowing what questions to ask is more profound. Students learn best when they feel safe to be themselves and to be imperfect. Growth is key; we learn by thinking, questioning, then repeating that process, by getting things wrong and then less wrong. I truly love helping young people grow as mathematical thinkers.
