I have been teaching math from 7th grade to High School for the last 27 years. I have taught all subjects from 7th grade math, 8th grade math, to Trig, Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus.

I know the standards and feel confident I can help students with questions coming from most common core standards. I am also the department head in my building over 7 math teachers. We have attended several professional development on the common core standards and also teach out of Common Core Edition Textbooks.
