Math is a very important part of our day.  I am very passionate about teaching math because it is a skill that we use in our everyday lives.  I always relate math to things that the students are familiar with so that they gain a better understanding of each mathematical concept and its importance.  I frequently have the students play math games to reinforce concepts that were taught during instruction.  These games and hands-on activities keep the students engaged in the learning process. The math program that is used in class is called enVisionMATH.  It is a math program that balances skill instruction with instruction that develops conceptual understanding through problem based interactive and visual learning.

enVisionMATH Program Philosophy
Key focal points:
• Conceptual Development- Interactive Learning + Visual Learning
• Ongoing assessment, diagnosis, and intervention
• Differentiated instruction
