San Francisco, CA
Math teacher dedicated to exploring the world alongside her students and peers. The focus of my math class goes far beyond mathematical concepts as I use global and social issues to help focus inquiry and work with numbers in a real world context. I believe that working with real world statistics, alongside collaborative and creative projects, students will develop the "need to know" that will lead to mastery.
Using creative lesson plans, project based learning, technlogy and global connections, middle school math students use the core math concepts as the catalyst to explore much more. Move over traditional math class, we are getting global.
