Education with DocRunning

I create student-centered curriculum, primarily in maths. I have taught in high poverty public schools, private schools and most recently in gifted programs. I believe in student-centered learning. Students are the inspiration and often designers of their own learning. My curriculum supports students being empowered to think and question.
