February 2019 Highlighted Educator
Every month, Cube For Teachers highlights an educator on Cube that is recognized for their ongoing collaboration, helping other educators by sharing and curating effective teaching resources.
This month’s highlighted educator came to us from a recommendation from of a few of our Cube members. To our discovery, Math Monkey was created for the purpose of supporting other Math teachers within an Ontario school district.
We recently asked Math Monkey a few questions. This is what they had to share…
Can you tell our education community a bit about yourself?
MathMonkey: “I am a Math educator, and have taught various grades in both the junior and intermediate division. I’m always on the lookout for Math resources to support my students. Recently, I’m on the lookout for fun and interactive resources. I’ve never really been tech savvy, but finding Cube useful for curating my resources in folders and sharing with others.”
When it comes to education, what are you passionate about?
MathMonkey: I am passionate about helping my students strive. I realize the importance with Mathematics and am always trying to support my students with fun, differentiated support materials.
Is there a new frontier in education you are gearing up to explore?
MathMonkey: I am now searching for resources that support inquiry in Mathematics and integrating all STEM subject areas into my lessons. I recently discovered Kyle Pearce and am now applying some of his lessons.
What benefit would you bring to another Cube follower? (i.e. What kinds of resources do you most often share?)
MathMonkey: “I am often on the lookout for Math resources – especially interactive resources and daily challenges. As I find them, I share them on Cube.”
Is there a Cube folder you would like us to highlight?
MathMonkey: “Real-Life Math Scenarios is a folder I’d like to highlight. Within this folder are links to various resources that offer challenges to students in the area of Mathematics.”
