I’ve taught middle school math for the last ten years, mostly 8th grade, with a couple years of intervention support. I’ve spent a lot of time this past decade creating activities for my class. This year I’m moving down to 7th grade, and I’m excited to start making some fun new activities for my new class! I’ve linked my Teachers Pay Teachers store, Math Equals Fun, as well as some of my favorite products for 8th grade.

Have a good year, my teacher friends!
