Chesney Elementary School
What do you love about teaching mathematics?
I love teaching mathematics because there are hands-on connections and many opportunities to relate and apply concepts to the real world. I love that I can encourage creativity and critical thinking in my students because there is more than one way to solve a math problem. I also love instilling mathematical behaviors in my students (e.g. perseverance, problem-solving, reasoning, constructing arguments).
What are you most looking forward to in the PSREMS project?
I look forward to learning and growing as a teacher leader that can positively influence my colleagues’ instruction and, in turn, positively impact student achievement at my school.
