I grew up in New Braunfels, Texas (Yes, I am still a Texan Native). In 1988, I graduated from Canyon High School. I attended Gallaudet University and earned a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education and Mathematics. I had an internship as a student teacher at Texas School for the Deaf. Although I enjoyed the teaching, I decided to pursue a Master degree in Deaf Education at McDaniels College. Again, I did my student teaching at Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind. I ended up there and I worked several years in teaching math for middle school/high school and then moved back to Texas (What is it with me and the heat?) where I became a math teacher at Texas School for the Deaf.
I wanted to let you know about an approach to teaching that I will be using this year in all my classes. It is called the “flipped” classroom. The basic concept behind a flipped classroom is that what was traditionally done in the classroom becomes homework and what was traditionally done at home (homework) is done in the classroom. The website will list the daily agenda, class assignments, homework assignments as well as a calendar so students can see when their respective assignments are due or when they have a test.
I look forward to getting to know each of you. We are going to have a great year!
