I am an Instructional Resource Teacher (IRT) for Mathematics in a middle school in Maryland.
I am certified to teach Secondary Math grades 7 – 12 and Special Education grades k – adult.
My first teaching experience was at a non-public special education facility for ages 5 – 21. I was THE ONE math teacher for the high school part of the program, so I taught those students multiple subjects until they graduated. The school specializes in the work that they do with students with Autism.
In the public school system, I have only taught 8th grade pre-algebra and Algebra 1. But, now as an IRT I support students and teachers of grades 6 – 8, as well as Algebra 1, Geometry, and STEM.
My favorite thing to think about (besides actual instruction) is curriculum.
