BSED Mathematics from University of South Dakota in May 2005
Experience: 4 years
Hello! My name is Jackie. I am originally from South Dakota. I graduated from the University of South Dakota with a BSED (Bachelor of Science in Education) in Mathematics. I have experience with teaching in South Dakota, Wyoming, Kansas, and a DoDD's school.
My student teaching experience was in England in a DoDD's school. I taught Geometry and Algebra I. I enjoyed the classes where I was able to teach students in a more one-on-one environment.
After graduating, I got a job as a high school Mathematics teacher in a small town in Wyoming. I taught 8th grade Math, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Pre-calculus, and a senior level Math. I enjoyed teaching in a more hands-on approach in Wyoming.
In the fall of 2007, I was able to teach Pre-calculus and Algebra I in a school in South Dakota. I was a long term substitute for someone that was on maternity leave.
In 2007, I started tutoring at South Dakota State University. While there I was able to help a student that had failed college Algebra 6 times and needed to pass the class in order to graduate. I tutored him on a regular basis all semester. He ended up getting a B in the class. I learned how to teach in a way that I did not know how to before I did this experience.
During the school year of 2009-2010, I taught 7th, 8th, and 9th grade Mathematics in South Dakota. I taught a Pre-algebra class where I set up individual lessons for 6 students and tried to work one-on-one with each of them.
