About

Welcome and thanks for stopping by.  scmathcoach is Me!  I am a teacher in my heart and soul, but currently spend my days as a District Elementary Math Coach in Rock Hill, South Carolina.  I began this blog in hopes of sharing my journey from math-a-phobe to mathematician and math educator.  As a student I struggled tremendously in math.  My parents hired tutors from 7th grade on, and I can only recall two teachers in middle school and high school who truly taught me the concepts I needed to learn, rather than just telling me to memorize.  I will dedicate this blog to them; Mr. Carlson and Mr. Vernon.  Along my journey I have met and continue to work with numerous elementary teachers who tell me, ” I just don’t get math, it’s not my thing.” I share my story with them. I have to believe that I’m in this position to improve the foundations of mathematics for children and to help teachers grow in their own mathematical thinking.  This blog is to practice my passion for writing, and to educate and share with other teachers.
