About

Currently I teach 6th grade math at Chase Middle School in Topeka, KS. I love my kids and math and trying new things. I graduated in 2013 with a degree in Math, Spanish, and a teaching licence from the UkanTeach Program at the University of Kansas (and a minor in music, but we don’t talk about that). If I was forced to describe myself in one word it would be passionate or learner or determined or super-cool.  Anyway, check out my things and feel free to comment, but don’t judge me too harshly- I think I’m funnier than I probably am, and I’m sure it doesn’t help not talking to me in person.

  1. Hey, just wanted to let you know about an interesting piece of software we developed to help kids do math exercises. It uses Facebook time as a reward for performance. Check it out at http://getaftermath.com and please drop me a line if you’d like to discuss or write an article about it.

    Hi Ann,

    Found that you’re so committed to education and that’s awesome, we definitely can learn from you if we ever got the chance! Anyway, this is about a Mathematics mobile app, ‘Little Wizy Kingdom’ (trailer: https://www.dropbox.com/s/dmp8akmr5kqotir/wizykingdom_v2.mp4).

    To sum up the game, think of it as a combination between Farmville, Mathematics and logic thinking.
    ‘Build your kingdom by solving Mathematics questions and puzzles!’

    We believe that Mathematics is the fundamental of our world, a scroll, a book or poem can be burned and lost, but mathematics can never be destroyed.

    Little Wizy Kingdom is a an app with great quality and truly made for the next generation. And of course, the app is designed not only to teach, but to generate a ‘Mathematical mind’.

    Thank you! The future of humanity starts from small steps! Do let me know if you’re interested in taking a look at this app, it would be great to have your feedback on Little Wizy Kingdom.

    🙂

    Cheers,
    Boon Hong
