My name is Rachael Hertz and I have three children who are part of TEC. I have a degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Mathematics. I taught for six years. The first three years I taught 5th-8th grade at a private school and the last three years I taught in St. Charles public schools in their gifted math program for 4th-5th grade. I got started with TEC through friends who had been a part of the co-op for many years and strongly recommended it. We started with TEC last year and are looking forward to another great year!
This year I will be teaching Math Fun. This class won’t take the place of the math curriculum you use at home, but will extend the concepts being taught and allow the students to focus more on problem solving. This class will be very hands-on. We will be carving pumpkins to focus on graphing and data, making crazy putty to focus on fractions, designing castles to focus on measurement, and much more!
We hope you’ll join us for a great year!
