This is my 3rd year teaching math, but my first year of teaching AP Stats. I am a little nervous since I am creating the course from nothing (nothing left from the previous teacher). I am open to any and all suggestions about calendars, tests, review sessions, and anything else you would like to share with me!

I developed www.NumberBender.com with the intention of sharing my math presentations to the world. As a high school math teacher, I have created numerous slideshow presentations for my math classes, allowing me to give the students my full attention. This has saved me tremendous amount of time and has helped students when they are taking notes. Instead of having to hurry and copy their notes before I erase it from the board, at the end of the presentation I can go back and show the slides for those students who have difficulty writing their notes quickly. Prior to coming to the United States, I have taught in several schools in China and the Philippines. I have been teaching math since 2005 in Barstow High School and have taught almost every subject since. I have taught strategic math, algebra1, algebra2, precalculus, geometry, and AP statistics. Teaching was never my first choice of career. I used to be a project manager in an IT firm but the teaching bug bit me. As the saying goes, “Many are called, but few are chosen”, and I believe I am one of those chosen few who truly enjoy the job of being a teacher. Teaching has broaden my horizons and taken me to so many amazing places where I met so many wonderful people. Education: EDD (candidate) MAT Math (2012) BS Mathematics (2001) BSEd Computer Applications (2001)

I am a high school mathematics teacher in Massachusetts. I LOVE my job. I currently teach Algebra 1 (CP2), Algebra 2 (CP1) and AP Statistics. I graduated from the University of Tampa with a Bachelor's of Science in Secondary Mathematics Education. I am currently attending UMASS Lowell, pursueing a Master's of Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in Mathematics. My goal is to incorporate technology into my classroom in a meaningful way. Ultimately I want all of my students to be successful in math. My focus will be on "flipping the classroom" however I am willing to try other uses of technology as well. By incorporating technology, I hope to prepare my students for college and careers in the 21st century. Outside of teaching, I love to read, scrapbook, travel (I am the Travel Club advisor at my school) and ski

Hello! I am a math teacher at Central High School in St. Paul, MN, and have taught there since 2003. Most recently, my teaching load has consisted of AP Statistics, AP Calculus, and Algebra 1, but I also have taught Geometry, Algebra 2, IB Standard Level Math, and Basic Standards Math. I enjoy working with all types of learners! Regarding my own education... I received a B.S. in Math from the University of Minnesota in 2003, and a M.Ed. in Math Education also from the U of M in 2008. In 2010, I completed a certificate in Urban Teaching from Hamline University.

I am a High School Mathematics teacher, and have been teaching Geometry, Algebra 2, and AP Statistics for 7 years. I earned my BS in Chemistry from the University of Tampa, and earned my MEd (specializing in secondary mathematics and science education with a middle school endorsement) from National-Louis University.

41 years of teaching in areas as diverse as mathematics, physics, English, gymnastics and computer science. Presently AP Calculus/Statistics/Computer Science teacher at Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis.
