Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
I worked at an urban magnet high school in Charlotte, North Carolina where I was placed as an Algebra 1 teacher. My focus was test score performance given the school’s current student proficiency of 45%. In my first year of teaching, my students outperformed the most affluent public schools in the district with 97% student proficiency on the North Carolina End of Course Algebra 1 exam. Over the course of three years, I led my school’s Algebra 1 proficiency from 45% to 84% with my classes average above 90% proficiency every semester.
