Name: Jenifer W.
Location: Miami, FL
Experience With Elevate K-12: 1 year
Expert/Superstar In: 8th Grade Math and Geometry
What excites you most about teaching your particular subject?
Math is everywhere and I want to get students to enjoy the subject by showing them real-world math situations.
How do you make live, online instruction engaging?
I try to have students participate as much as possible and make math fun.
What strategies do you use to effectively reach your students who are working below grade-level expectations?
I try to relate the subject to something that the students would be familiar with and have them practice as much as possible. I believe if you don't use it, you lose it.
What do you like about working from home/remotely?
I get to work with students and colleagues from around the US.
How do you ensure your students have been successful whether they're learning at home, school, or both?
I have an IDEA mantra I follow. Inspire to Dream by Educating All students. One IDEA can change the outcome of students' lives.
Describe your best moment teaching live and online. Be specific!
I once did a poll in a live class and almost 100% of students were confident about learning math! That's such a great feeling!
Tell us a little more about who you are--what do you like to do?
My favorite hobby right now is crocheting purses. I love to read, create jewelry, cook, and photography. I see math in all I do and want to share that with students. I became a vegan in December of 2020 and feel excellent!
Thanks, Jenifer W.!
