Welcome to my Homepage. My name is Beatriz Victores and I am a teacher at Southwest Miami Senior High. I started teaching gifted students about 3 years ago and I love it! My classes consist of nineth and tenth grade gifted students. Geometry and algebra II is what I enjoy teaching and I am always on the lookout for exciting and creative ideas in these two areas. I have been in the teaching field for 11 years and have taught all levels from dropout prevention to gifted classes. I am very interested in any innovative projects or lesson plans in the area of algebra II and geometry, especially for the gifted.
I live in Miami, Florida and the temperature often reaches 98° making it very hot. This weather is great for the beach, but not for teaching outdoors! However, if any of you fellow teachers have great ideas for outdoor projects, I would love to meet with you.
I plan on teaching the following topics: tesselations, conic sections, and area. I am very interested in meeting with other teachers interested in these topics.
