More About Me

I started my career in education as a pre-k teacher.  It was supposed to be a job while I worked on my child psychology degree, but I could not tear myself away from it.  I continued teaching pre-k for 6 years.  That evolved into another four years of working as a certified teacher trainer, an early childhood administrator, and the curriculum coordinator for our preschool/pre-k program.

I adored teaching pre-k, but I was ready for the next challenge.  As I completed my undergrad in early childhood education, I decided to add coursework to also finish my degree in elementary education.  The best education I received was the years of substitute teaching I did and my student teaching.  I worked with the most supportive mentors during this time who allowed me to explore lessons in their classrooms and provided feedback to help me grow.  

After finishing my undergrad, I was hired for a brand new position in my district.  The had remedial reading classes for years, but never remedial math.  I was hired with five others to create a math intervention program at the elementary schools with the highest poverty rate in the district. It was the most terrifying and invigorating experience I've had as an educator.

It lead me to seek out a masters program that would help me build a high quality math program and support as many people as possible.  I found another brand new program that seemed to be created just for me.  My state had just finished developing a masters program for Elementary Math Specialists.  It was an incredible experience that changed my entire outlook on high quality mathematics instruction.

These days I continue to search for opportunities to learn from and collaborate with other passionate math educators.  I also love to share what I am passionate about at conferences, Twitter chats, and of course this blog.  During my down time, I love to do crafts, especially making handmade greeting cards and crochet.  Baseball, Disney, cooking, and football are among my favorite obsessions.  I also love movies and reading.  Sometimes I even manage to read a few books that have nothing to do with math!
