Short Personal Bio:
I am the sixth grade homeroom and middle school mathematics teacher (grades 5-8) at St. Justin Martyr. I am very excited to be apart of this community of teachers, parents, and students and I am looking forward to all of our activities this school year. Just to give a brief introduction about myself, I am a credentialed teacher from California State University, Long Beach. Through Cal State, I have earned my Bachelors in Education and Masters in Education with an option in Mathematics. Prior to this position, I worked as a substitute teacher in the Garden Grove District for three years and a private tutor for more than eight years.
Tech In The Classroom:
Students in sixth grade each have their own iPads that they are responsible before. They use their iPads to take notes in both math and reading on notability. They also use Google Docs to write assignments and turn them in on Google Classroom. The students also have an online tech-book for social studies and science where they can read the content of the lesson.
Aside from the daily content, students are encouraged to use their iPads as a resource for additional help. Students each have an ST math account that exposes them to different math concepts at their own pace and level. They use spelling city to learn, review, and test their spelling words. They use Epic to read online books at their level. They take AR tests on their iPads when finished reading a book. They use the internet as a research tool help them throughout projects.
