Hi, my name is Paula Sellier and I am from Trinidad and Tobago. I am the last of four girls. I have two handsome nephews, Jordan and Zane and one gorgeous niece, Kareesa.
I have been lucky enough to live in two of the most beautiful places in the world: Trinidad and Costa Rica!
I am a member of the newly formed WikiCaribbean forum. This group seeks to create
- A Wiki learning community in the Caribbean
- Promote literacy and higher order thinking skills at all levels of education
- A forum to promote best practices in teaching and learning at all levels of education in the Caribbean
I am a Reiki practioner with many students! :)
- I have two puppies Emma and Eko, rescues from the TTSPCA
- I have two cats Max and Twix, rescues from Costa Rica
- I work at COSTAATT where I am:
- Coordinator of Developmental Mathematics
- Senior Lecturer in the Math Department
- Student academic advisor
- exam author
- exam peer reviewer
My passion is helping my students not only by giving the students the tools to be successful in Mathematics but to impart to them a deeper understanding of the subject. I truly believe if the students were taught Mathematics through experiential learning, they would gain so much more than knowledge but rather a longing to continue to learn and grow in the field.
Teachers of mathematics also need to have a deeper understanding of the material before attempting to impart it to their students. When the teachers are more relaxed and confident with the material, the learning environment becomes less rigid and more open to the types of learning experiences advantageous to real learning.
I will be creating lessons that students may use to help them better understand some of the major concepts needed for continued studies at our school as well as give teachers another resouce to which they can send their students for review and extra practice.
Please check out my pages at Math Notes If you have any suggestions I would greatly appreciate them! Thank you!
