I studied pure math in college and currently teach geometry, precalculus, and calculus to high school students.
I seek to instill in my students a skill of problem-solving and a curiosity for math. I seek to give my students real challenges in math and assess them in a way that circumvents memorization and mindless repetition.
I question assumptions about education a lot and have come really far in the few years I’ve been teaching. I look back on myself when I first started and realize that I was just following what I’d seen as a student (and what I saw from colleagues) without really thinking about it. I’m trying to think about it more now and make sure that everything I’m doing is really helping my students learn.
I want to use this blog to talk about what I’m learning and hopefully get feedback and inspiration from other bloggers.
