I am Ruthan Richards and I have been a Numeracy Specialist for the pass 3 years. I am passionate about teaching math as I strongly believe it is a very rewarding experience. Mathematics is a unique and international language that I believe can be used as a tool to understand and interpret our world. In our increasingly technological economy, conceptual and procedural fluency is possible for all as I believe all students can learn and as a teacher it is my responsibility to find the best suited method for each of my students. I believe in guided discover, collaboration, game-based learning and real life applicability of concepts critical in developing critical thinking and problem solving skills of our 21st century learners. My learning environment is always fun-filled fostering deep understanding of important mathematical skills and utilization of sound mathematical habits of mind. I teach so both my students and myself can learn about the infinite possibilities of the world and it’s relationship to mathematics.
