About the teacher:
I hail from the beautiful island of Jamaica. I have been in the education system for 5 years now where I serve in the capacity of both a high school math educator and as a mathematics coach with the National Mathematics Team for the Ministry of Education. I moved to the USA last year August 2019 as I was hired by the district to teach mathematics at Smith High School where I taught Mathematics grades 9- 12 students. Last school year I taught Math 2, Math 2 honors, Pre-calculus and Math 3.
I was born with a passion for teaching. That passion pushes me to become a transformation educator. Having gained life experiences, I now want to share my knowledge and experiences with the young people of today and help them prepare the path for their future. More specifically to help young children eliminate the fear of mathematics, to not see the subject as abstract and isolated with a long list of formulas, rules and algorithm to remember but to develop conceptual understanding, make connections between topics, strands, other disciplines as well as relating to the mathematics in their everyday life as I too had a similar perception. I envision a world where everyone is enthused about mathematics, sees the value and beauty of mathematics and is empowered by the opportunities it affords.
