For the past three years I have been working with a diverse group of students to develop their mathematical skills. I work with students age 15 to age 20, from many walks of life. I am responsible for teaching all math content at my school, from pre-algebra through algebra 2. This is a true challenge because I may go from teaching fractions, decimals and percents to teaching composite functions or translations. This variation is difficult to plan for, but can be done. I love my job and what I do most days, the students I teach have had very little success before coming to my school. It is amazing to see the transformations that occur throughout the year with our students.
