Why do you teach mathematics?

“I love math.  I think it’s beautiful.  I believe that there is intrinsic value to learning and understanding math, and I enjoy sharing that beauty with my students.  Beyond curriculum and outcomes, I mostly teach to have a positive impact on students’ lives beyond the classroom.  Making students feel loved and cared for is what’s most important to me as a teacher.”

What are you focused on improving about mathematics teaching?

“I hope to improve student engagement in the classroom, and I hope to see students’ interest and confidence level around math improve in powerful ways.  I hope to be more efficient with planning, more creative with instruction, and more purposeful with everything that happens in the classroom.”
