What do you enjoy about teaching students math with Elevate K-12?
Math has been a passion of mine since I was a kid because I love numbers and solving problems. Teaching math gets me excited since I get to share my passion with students and help them see how math can be applied to their world outside of school.
Describe your favorite part of teaching online.
My best moment teaching online was when I was teaching a group of 4th grade students. I remember how excited they got when I decided to change a word problem to include FortNite and they became so engaged with the material and could not stop talking about how much they like the game. It made me so happy to show them that math can relate to games that they enjoy at home.
Outside of working with students, what do you like to do?
I love to exercise, lift weights at the gym, play basketball and I enjoy staying up to date with new technology.
Thanks, Omar G.!
