I am a mother, wife and high school math teacher. I will begin my 26th year of teaching at Kent Place School this fall in Summit, NJ and my favorite class to teach is AP Statistics! @mathteacher24 is my twitter handle and I finished a #teach180 blog this past year at mathteacher24.blogspot.com. I have several tech related videos for stat and TI-NSpire at www.youtube.com/mathteacher24. I also enjoy playing singing reading and doing crazy workouts from Beachbody (P90X/Insanity/TurboFire).

I have taught everything at secondary level, from grade 7 through AP Calc and AP Stats. I recently left the classroom to coach teachers in using technology effectively in the classroom. my most exhilarating days are when I'm co-teaching a math lesson with another teacher as helping others grow (both student and adult) is my favorite things to do.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts Building a Statewide Network of Strong Math Leaders
The Global Math Department began as a group of teachers who knew each other through Twitter, math education blogs and Twitter Math Camp. Since 2012 The Global Math Department community has grown into a multi-faceted group of math educators who love to share their ideas related to teaching and learning mathematics. We recognize that as educators we are charged with promoting equity and access within mathematics instruction. In addition, we believe it is crucial that teachers be provided with quality resources and ideas that they can use immediately with their students. Lively and friendly conversations in our weekly webinars encourage all participants to share and continue to grow as educators.
