Math Department Chair
Math Instructional Coach
Math is a skill that many students tend to struggle with but it certainly pays dividends if you are willing to take the time. Math truly is power. I am excited about the opportunity to work with the students at Indian River High School as the math instructional coach and as the department head. After teaching mathematics exclusively for 17 years, I recently took the position as the math coach to help support teachers and students in the area of mathematics. I get the unique opportunity to provide strategies, develop interim assessments, expand our online component, and examine our math curriculum 6-12 to improve the good work we are doing here at Indian River. With the increased emphasis on ELA and Math, as well as the changes with the curriculum to Common Core, I am able to be a resource and help to the math department. I only hope that the same passion that I brought to my classroom on a day to day basis can now be extended throughout the classrooms that I get to work with.
As a math department we are committed to the following:
