MACSME, in progress since Fall 2014
I am in the process of getting my teaching credential and Masters in Education to reach my career goal since childhood: to become a teacher. More specifically, I would like to teach high school mathematics. Although I have a love for all kinds of math, I have a passion for algebra and calculus.
I am interested in finding more useful ways of teaching mathematics that involve a justification and a deeper understanding that are often absent in traditional high school classrooms. In addition, I would like to explore ways for students to retain what they learn, instead of discarding the information once the class has ended. Similarly, I am interested in making it possible for students to use what they learn in class and relate it to the real world.
