Welcome to my blog!
Here is a little bit about me:
My name is Carrie Annable. I live in Hamilton, ON. I just started my 12th year of teaching (11th at my current school). I have taught anywhere from grade 6- grade 11 math, but am currently teaching grade 8 math. My main goal is to convince my students that math can be awesome! I try to make math as fun as I can, although this is always a continual work in progress. A few years back, I completed my M.Ed. from Nipissing University. My thesis examined what it was like to teach grade 6 students math using problem solving based approach. Last June, I received my Ph.D. from University of Toronto. My thesis examined how laptops were changing the landscape of mathematics teaching and learning.
I recently joined twitter and can be found there by the name @CarrieAnnable.
At my school I am in charge of the Middle School Math Program. I also co-chair a committee that I co-created with my colleague, Ryan Baker. This committee gives teachers at my school a place to learn from each other, discuss current trends in education, take part in action research and ultimately become leaders in pushing the boundaries of education.
