Math Teacher

Whitecourt, ALberta

A passionate mathematician, Kristine has dedicated her career to developing resources for high school students focusing on connecting mathematics to the real world. Kristine recently completed her Master of Education degree, specializing in Curriculum and Instruction in Mathematics, allowing her to practice alternative teaching and assessment strategies while conducting data driven research on reversed instruction and literacy and numeracy. Kristine has also completed studies on the connection between technology in the classroom and achievement versus technology and engagement, PBL versus Traditional (lecture based) classroom instruction, and is midway through a study comparing ninth through twelfth grade final summative achievement results on 12 students she has been able to follow up through their mathematics courses . Performing action research in a classroom setting has inspired Kristine to look for innovative ways to engage students in the learning outcomes, connect to the community, and apply lifelong learning skills in their everyday lives.
