I started making videos as a "job application" for KhanAcademy.org, but I thought I might as well share them here as well.
I am a high school psychology teacher.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from B.Y.U. I am currently reading three books on design patterns. I am interested in Math, Computer Programming and Spanish. I plan to teach my kids some C# programming in the Summer and this medium would be just right to share with them.
I am originally from a small town called Vacherie in Louisiana. I received my bachelor’s degree in education from the University of New Orleans and after teaching high school math for 4 years, returned to UNO for a Master’s Degree in Mathematics. I then began my PhD work at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and finally completed that in 1989. I have taught an online elementary statistics course for St. Leo University (Florida) for several years. I am currently employed as an instructor in the mathematics department at Normandale Community College in Bloomington, Minnesota, where I teach a variety of intro level mathematics course from developmental to college algebra.
Hi and thanks for checking out my profile! My name is Rachel and I've been a high school mathematics teacher for 7 years, specializing in Geometry and Statistic. I have been a state qualifying cross country coach, freshman mentor, tutor, ACT Prep instructor, and Junior/Senior class sponsor. My undergraduate degree (BS in Chemistry) is from the University of Tampa, and my graduate degree is from National-Louis University (MAT - specializing in secondary math and science education with a middle school endorsement). I worked as a cosmetic chemist for TreSemme prior to earning my teaching certificate. It didn't take long to learn that students are a lot more interesting and fun to work with than swatches of hair and batches of shampoo :) Not only do I love to teach, but I love to run, cook (and eat!), and I'm an avid scuba diver who loves to dive with sharks!
I am a middle school teacher, cheer sponsor, and robotics club sponsor. I have a BBA in Marketing from Texas A&M Univeristy, a Teaching Certification from UT Tyler, a MBA from LeTourneau University and I am working on my M.Ed. in School Counseling.
Biology and Psychology Student at Queens University of Charlotte. Also studied at the University of Maryland, College Park.
