I am an 8th Grade Algebra 1, Pre-Algebra and US History Public School Teacher (& tech geek) with two dogs. In my free time I coach, scrapbook and I am always looking for ways to improve my teaching & classroom environment.
I'm super excited to join with you guys - I have learned so much from y'all via twitter and reading and commenting on your blogs. Thank you for being so inclusive and encouraging of us newer members - it feels really good to be part of this community. I'm excited to learn more and grow in my teaching, and hopefully be able to contribute something on occasion too.
I have taught 7th & 8th grade math in Minneapolis for 3 years. Next year, I'll be teaching Algebra II and Geometry at Southwest High School. Would love to talk with anyone who wants to share ideas or chat about those classes. Or really anyone. I love math teachers. arbitrarilyclose.com
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.
