Welcome back to school at Scholars Academy!!
Hello parents, staff, and scholars! My name is Rochelle White. I am honored and look forward to working with our scholars in the Gifted and Talented Math Program this year! My teaching experience includes teaching algebra, geometry, and statistics as well as early elementary concepts such as fractions, decimals, number concepts, and operations in school districts including Asbury Park and Sayreville. My education includes graduating from Georgian Court University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education in 2011 where I earned my teaching certification(s) in Elemenary Education, Middle School Mathematics, Middle School Language Arts, and Teacher of Students with Disabilitites. Afterwards, I graduated with a Masters of Science Degree in Special Education in 2014 from Monmouth University.
It is my goal to enrich every scholar in their love of learning in math and in finding the math in everything we do. Math is everywhere! It is my belief that every child has different learning needs and will learn given they have a learning environment that supports the emotional, psychological, and academic needs of each child.
I look forward to teaching and learning from our scholars this year as every day is an opportunity for learning something new! Scholars in the Gifted and Talented Math Program will be learning algorithms and geometrical concepts that relate to the Rubik's Cube. The Cube also requires critical thinking and reasoning. On the math curriculum page, I have provided links to a video, the solution guide, and to our lesson by lesson At Home Connection Guides if you have a cube at home or wish to look at what your scholar is learning in class. In addition to the Rubik's Cube curriculum is a curriculum for teaching critical thinking, reasoning, and using project based learning activities in the mathematics classroom. Those links can be found on the math curriculum page to the left.
I can be emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
