I've always loved math but fell into teaching it quite accidentally and wound up teaching it for 10 years. I've taught grades 4 through 12, but mostly at the high school level; I've taught all levels- remedial, at grade level, and gifted; I've taught Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus and more. No matter what the level or the topic, I always enjoyed everything about it. I tried to teach my students that Math is not about numbers, but about patterns. By understanding those patterns it's possible to understand the way the world works, as well as to control and predict the future. Math trains the brain in ways that are helpful no matter what subject you study or practice. Plus, it's fun ;)
My SMARTBoard Math gallery (note, you will need to have SMARTnotebook installed to view/edit) Math Diaries- This was an assignment from one of the Graduate classes I took at Brooklyn College. I couldn't find the final version, but you can get a good idea of how a modified version of this assignment would be great to use in a math class!
