I teach middle grades and high school math in the Netherlands, both within the Dutch national curriculum (in English) and within the International Baccalaureate Middle Years & Diploma Programs. I’ve been working in the Netherlands for four years, but before that I taught in a 6-12 school in the South Bronx in NYC for three years.
Previous to becoming a math teacher I worked for 6 years in the music industry and actually have my bachelor’s degree in clarinet. I still devote about 1/4 of my time to making music.
I want to keep learning and developing as an educator, and find an online community to help me do so, and this blog is my attempt at that. I also tweet at @nerdypoo and have a less long-form blog (but full of fun math gifs and whatnot!) on tumblr also at nerdypoo. Drop a line anywhere!
