Tell us a bit about yourself.
I have been teaching for 9 years and I am currently completing my first year as Math Department Chair at Colony High School in Ontario, California. I have been married for two years and my husband I recently welcomed our first son. I enjoy spending time with my family and telling my husband corny math jokes, which he declines to acknowledge are hilarious (but I know he is laughing inside).
What do you teach?
I currently teach Integrated Math III Honors and College Prep.
Why did you become a teacher?
When I was in school, I saw that many of my friends feared math or had bad experiences with the subject. From a young age, I had a great love for math and I got into teaching to try and have others share in that feeling as well. One way I try to foster this love for math is by showing students that math is everywhere, and incorporating real life activities in the classroom.
How did you hear about Edcite?
I heard about Edcite through my colleague, Jessica Martinez, who has been incorporating and creating great assessments on Edcite!
How do you use Edcite in the classroom? What aspects make you most “Edcited” about Edcite?
I love the variety of question types Edcite offers because it allows me to formatively assess students for mastery throughout a unit. Students are given weekly “take home quizzes” to practice and provide feedback during a unit. This makes me “edcited” because it has given the students a sense of ownership of their education and puts them in control of their learning.
Final Words of Wisdom for other Edcite Users?
Be patient! Technology integration is new to many, but keep at it and you will see all the benefits that it brings to our classroom.
