Introduction

I am a 7th Grade math-STEM teacher.  My teaching philosophy is heavily influenced by the research of Jo Boaler, Professor of Math Education, Stanford University, who sees math as a creative subject as opposed to an exercise of procedure memorization.  I believe in connecting academic content to real-world applications for my students as a means to motivate them.  The importance of focus, coherence, and rigor will be emphasized in the classroom.  Per the California Common Core State Standards: Mathematics, “focus” means depth over breadth, “coherence” refers to building connections among mathematical concepts, and “rigor” places equal emphasis on procedural skill, conceptual understanding, and application.
